Tennessee Williams’ towering drama, A Streetcar Named Desire, reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject the realities of life with which she is faced. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, is intensified by the earthy young husband of the latter, and leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion.

The Performing Arts Theater is an intimate venue, please get your tickets well in advance as seating is very limited.
