Southern aristocrat and former schoolteacher Blanche (Kellie Kramer), down on her luck, is reduced to leaving her family plantation home and living with her sister, Stella (Vicky Stafford), and Stella's pugnacious blue-collar husband, Stanley (Jamaal Gabriel Allan), in New Orleans. Life with them in their tiny tenement apartment is unbearable until a kindly suitor appears and seems to offer Blanche a ticket to a better life. But Stanley, still seething at Blanche's high-handed dismissal of him, sets out to dismantle her genteel façade, hurtling them toward an epic clash in Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning classic.
