A Streetcar Named Desire
A struggle for power is at the heart of this dynamic Pultizer Prize winning and critically acclaimed play by Tennessee Williams. A Streetcar Named Desire reveals the depth of a volatile relationship between Stanley and Stella Kowalski. Gas is poured on the flame of that relationship when Stella's sister, Blanche du Bois, arrives on their doorstep, fleeing from reality caused by her romantic illusions.
The questions asked in 1947 when Streetcar premiered on Broadway may be asked today, says Callender, but in different ways. Though we are a different people in a different world, we are still intrigued, inspired and incensed by what goes on in the world. I want audiences to come to the theater but ask that they leave their preconceived notions at the door. All so that they may encounter Stella and Stanley, Blanche and Mitch, and Steve and Eunice as new friends worth getting to know, in this iconic play filled with truly unforgettable characters.
