VIDEO: WHEEL OF FORTUNE Contestant Has Epic Fail with Classic Drama

On last night's WHEEL OF FORTUNE, contestant Kevin had an unfortunate epic fail when he was not able to solve a puzzle missing just one letter. Rather than naming the classic Tennessee Williams' drama A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, the contestant guessed 'A Streetcar Naked Desire.' After the next player solved the puzzle correctly, host Pat Sajak joked, "although you got the right answer, I'd rather see Kevin's play!" Watch the video below.

A Streetcar Named Desire is a 1947 play written by American playwright Tennessee Williams which received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948. The play opened on Broadway on December 3, 1947 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The Broadway production was directed by Elia Kazan and starred Jessica Tandy, Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, and Kim Hunter.

A London production opened in 1949 with Bonar Colleano, Vivien Leigh, and Renee Asherson and was directed by Laurence Olivier. The drama is often regarded as among the finest plays of the 20th century, and is considered by many to be one of Williams' greatest.
