About This Show

In every sense an American masterpiece, this lingering, beautiful, tragic story remains one of the most affecting plays ever written. Set in the pivotal years immediately following World War II, A Streetcar Named Desire focuses on Blanche du Bois, whose romantic illusions prevent her from facing reality. The pressure put upon Blanche by her sister Stella, when she goes to live with her in New Orleans, is heightened by Stella’s earthy young husband, a symbol of an opposing class and differing attitude towards sex and love.
