This classic from one of our most revered playwrights illustrates a tragic clash of characters. After losing her job and home, Blanche Dubois has no where to go but to live in New Orleans with her sister Stella and brother-in-law, Stanley. Stanley, an intense and earthy young man, becomes troubled and threatened by the mysterious past and romantic illusions of Blanche. Williams dramatically reveals the attraction and violence of this charged relationship--poetry and fragility vs. muscle and force.
