This classic from one of the most revered playwrights, Tennessee Williams, illustrates a tragic clash of characters. After losing her job and home, Blanche DuBois moves to 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 versus muscle and force.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with approximately 2,600 students. It is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The college was founded in 1832.
