Streetcar Named Desire, A
Author: Tennessee Williams
'One of the greatest American plays'
Fading southern bell Blanche Dubois depends on the kindness of strangers and is adrift in the modern world. When she arrives to stay with her sister Stella in a crowded, boisterous corner of New Orleans, her delusions of grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley. Eventually their violent collision course causes Blanche's fragile sense of identity to crumble, threatening to destroy her sanity and her one chance of happiness.
Tennessee Williams's steamy and shocking landmark dram, recreated as the immortal film starring Marlon Brando, is one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century.
