‘I don't want realism, I want magic.'

Fading southern Belle Blanche DuBois unexpectedly appears at her sister's home in the stifling world of downtown New Orleans. With delusions of grandeur, Blanche stands in stark contrast to her new surroundings and her brother-in-law Stanley.

His determination to reveal her secrets lead her to withdraw ever further away from reality, into a world of illusions. A Streetcar Named Desire defined Tennessee Williams' (1911 - 1983) reputation as one of the greatest American Playwrights, winning him a Pulitzer Prize. His principal works include The Glass Menagerie (New York Critics' Circle Award), The Rose Tattoo (Tony Award for Best Play), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Pulitzer Prize), Suddenly Last Summer, Sweet Bird of Youth, Orpheus Descending and the Night of the Iguana (New York Critics' Circle Award).
