One of Tennessee Williams’ most electrifying and absorbing theatrical masterpieces, A Streetcar Named Desire is set in the late 1940s against the steamy backdrop of New Orleans’ gritty French Quarter. Blanche Dubois, a faded Southern belle, takes refuge with her sister Stella and her animalistic brother-in-law Stanley. Blanche’s childlike helplessness and her romantic self-delusions are no match for her harsh new surroundings, the oppressive summer heat, and Stanley’s explosive fits and growing lustful rage. The passionate conflicts and lyrical dialogue is bound to enchant, entice and move audiences.
