About this show

The unraveling of Blanche DuBois plays out within a lily-laced atmosphere of heated passion and pulsing sweat in Tennessee William's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Settling in with her sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley (Ricardo Antonio Chavira), Blanche crafts an image that masks her distasteful secrets. Refusing to bend to his sister-in-law, Stanley soon discovers that there is more to this self-styled Southern belle than she would like or is able to tell. Through its tumult of fantasies, reality and impassioned speeches, A Streetcar Named Desire paints a fascinating tragedy of a woman who struggles boldly against a harsh world, creating a night of compelling, intensely emotional theater. More than thirty years since the Guthrie's last production of Williams' American classic, this highly anticipated production promises a fulfilling midsummer night at the theater.
