A Streetcar Named Desire

About

Monday 28 January - Saturday 2 February 2019
The Lace Market Theatre
Tickets: From £9

In a run-down tenement in New Orleans' French Quarter, Stella Kowalski (née Dubois), the daughter of an old but impoverished Southern family, has made a new life for herself with her blue collar Polish American husband, Stanley. Unexpectedly, Stella's sister, Blanche, arrives in town, claiming to have taken a leave of absence from her teaching job and to have "lost" the family estate.

 

Tensions flare as the hot Louisiana summer wears on, with the proud and resentful Stanley becoming increasingly hostile towards his flaky and judgmental sister-in-law, growing suspicious of her delusional stories and of the blossoming romance between Blanche and his buddy, Mitch.

 

Tennessee Williams' explosive 1947 domestic drama is as bluesy, boozy, fiery and passionate as a hot night in New Orleans, and was a sensation on stage and screen, immortalised in Marlon Brando's legendary performance as Stanley Kowalski.

 

This amateur production of "A Streetcar Named Desire" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
