Winner of the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play, Tennessee Williams' iconic masterpiece follows the fading but still attractive southern belle Blanche DuBois as she arrives unexpectedly on the doorstep of her sister, Stella, and her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Over the course of one hot, sultry New Orleans summer, Blanche's fragile facade slowly crumbles as she meets her match in the rough-hewn and sensual Stanley, who sees through her and is determined to expose her.
