The American Classic

One of the greatest works of American theatre, A Streetcar Named Desire brings southern belle Blanche DuBois to New Orleans to reunite with her sister, Stella, and to escape her past. Her affectations of refinement set her immediately at odds with Stella’s blue-collar husband, Stanley Kowalski. Blanche's sophisticated exterior crumbles as she intertwines with their simple life and Stanley’s fierce, unpredictable personality. The apartment becomes a pressure cooker of sensuality and class tensions, ultimately erupting in some of the most iconic dramatic moments seen on the modern stage. Join Nashville Rep as they present the classic that won Tennessee Williams his Pulitzer Prize.
