Set in the stifling heat of New Orleans’ Latin Quarter, A Streetcar Named Desire follows wilting Southern beauty, Blanche DuBois, as she attempts to escape her former life and past trauma. Blanche takes up residence in her sister Stella’s cramped two-room apartment, much to the irritation of her boorish and abrasive brother-in-law Stanley. But as details of Blanche’s past come to light, she incurs the suspicion and then wrath of Stanley, and her sense of reality begins to shatter.
Culminating in a violent clash of characters and natures, illusion and reality, A Streetcar Named Desire brings the subjects of identity, sexuality, desire and fate into stark light in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tennessee Williams, directed by Irish Times Theatre Award winning director, Emma Jordan.
