The Crescent Theatre Company presents

A Streetcar Named Desire

by Tennesee Williams

9 – 16 Nov in the Studio

There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:45 performance on Fri, 15th Nov. Free to ticket holders.

A turbulent confrontation between traditional values in the American South – an old-world graciousness and beauty running decoratively to seed – set against the rough-edged, aggressive materialism of the new world. Through vividly characterised figures of Southern belle Blanche DuBois seeking refuge from physical ugliness in decayed gentility, and her brutal brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, Tennessee Williams dramatises his sense of the South’s past as still active and often destructive in modern America.
