In one of the most renowned plays of the American theater, Blanche DuBois, a schoolteacher, arrives in New Orleans and takes a streetcar named “Desire” to the French Quarter, where her sister, Stella, and Stella’s husband, Stanley Kowalski, live.
Blanche’s affectations of refinement set her immediately at odds with blue-collar Stanley. The apartment becomes a pressure cooker of sensuality and class tensions, ultimately erupting in some of the most iconic dramatic moments seen on the modern stage.
A Streetcar Named Desire is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York, on behalf of The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee.
