Black Swan State Theatre Company to Present A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, 15 March - 6 April
Blanche, an aging Southern belle, impoverished and alcoholic, escaping lost illusions and faded glory, seeks shelter with her sister, Stella, in New Orleans.
Stella and her husband, Stanley, live and love in a tiny apartment in a poor quarter of New Orleans, where the inhabitants pulse with vitality and sensuality. Blanche's arrival throws the couple into turmoil when Blanche, the dreamer, and Stanley, the realist, battle each other for Stella's affections. When a sexually charged conflict erupts between Stanley and Blanche, it threatens to destroy Blanche's tenuous grasp on sanity and the very fabric of Stella's happiness.
Starring multi-award winning Australian actors, Sigrid Thornton (Sea Change) and Nathaniel Dean, and featuring some of Western Australia's most acclaimed performers, this heartbreaking play will intoxicate you with its raw, dramatic power. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play and numerous other awards.
Directed by Kate Cherry, the cast features Benj D'Addario, Nathaniel Dean, Luke Hewitt, Michael Loney, Rhoda Lopez, William McNeill, Jo Morris, Sigrid Thornton, StEve Turner, and Alison van Reeken.
