A Streetcar Named Desire

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Anne Somes
Associate Director Cate Clelland

The Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams is set in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The year is 1947 – the same year the play was written. “Streetcar is a thicket of internal wars”. The complexity, the ambivalence and the unexpectedness of the characters draw us to ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’.

“There should always be an area of mystery in human characters”

Tennessee Williams

His ability to create a duality that plagues his characters, the intimation that a potentially destructive life beats just beneath the surface. The ambiguity of the attraction and repulsion, the fear and the love present a really stimulating challenge.

An amateur production by arrangement with ORiGiN™Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. – A Concord Theatricals Company.
