A Streetcar Named Desire
Set against the steamy backdrop of New Orleans' gritty French Quarter, Williams' drama tells the story of Blanche DuBois, a faded southern belle, driven to madness by her brutish brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Ann Keen (Director of Polarity's critically acclaimed Hamlet) has assembled a cast chock full of ensemble members in a production that, in the Polarity tradition, breaks the play down to its gritty essentials, and rebuilds it with unique elements, such as an emoting live violin.
