Wililamstown Theatre Festival has announced the plays that will comprise its 2011 season on its Nikos Stage.

The theater's first offering will be a production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, to run June 22 - July 3. Jessica Hecht and Sam Rockwell will star as Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, respectively, in this play about simmering tensions in and around a tiny New Orleans apartment, to be directed by David Cromer. In addition, Joe Grifasi will direct Lewis Black's One Slight Hitch (July 6-17), a modern-day farce about a young woman's wedding day, which will feature Paige Howard and Mark Linn-Baker.

Paul Walsh's translation of Henrik Ibsen's look at a woman's unhappy marriage, A Doll's House, will star Oscar Isaac, Hamish Linklater, Matthew Maher, Lily Rabe, and Lili Taylor under the direction of Sam Gold and run July 20-31.

The Nikos Stage season will also include Trip Cullman's staging of Bess Wohl's portrait of a woman's attempts to deal with her sister's mental illness, Touch(ed) (August 3-14), as well as a look at difficult familial conversations, You Better Sit Down: tales from my parents' divorce (August 16-21), written by Anne Kauffman, Matthew Maher, Caitlin Miller, Jennifer R. Morris, Janie Paran, and Robbie Collier Sublett.

As previously announced, the Williamstown mainstage season will include such offerings as a revival of You Can't Take It With You and Ten Cents a Dance, a new musical piece directed by John Doyle, among others.
