A Streetcar Named Desire

Feb 08 - Feb 24

A Streetcar Named Desire is widely regarded as Tennessee William's greatest piece of theatre.  It tells the story of Blanche DuBois, who arrives at her sister Stella's French Quarter apartment, her intent is simple: to take some time off from her stressful teaching career and break the news about the unfortunate loss of the beloved family plantation.  Blanche is a fading Southern belle whose pretentions to virtue only thinly mask her alcoholism and delusions of grandeur. During the course of her visit, Blanche's thinly veiled veneer is suddenly cracked by Stella's husband, Stanley Kowalski.  Stanley is a true force of nature: primal, rough-hewn, brutish, and sensual.  Their collision threatens to take down everyone in its path in a clash of lies, propriety, madness and primal instinct.

 

 

A Streetcar Named Desire performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm with Sunday matinees at 2:30 pm starting Friday, February 8 through Sunday, February 24, 2019.
