Centrestage Theatre Company Presents:

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

Set in the French Quarter of New Orleans during the restless years following World War Two, A Streetcar Named Desire is the story of Blanche DuBois, a fragile and neurotic woman on a desperate prowl for someplace in the world to call her own. Desire and destruction form a toxic cocktail that influences the motivations and actions of the play's four major characters. Blanche, Stanley, Stella, and Mitch are driven by a variety of desires, including the need for romance, sex, power or self-protection. Williams' most popular work, A Streetcar Named Desire is considered one of the finest and most critically acclaimed plays of the twentieth century.
