Details

Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winning play follows the mental and moral disintegration of Blanche DuBois, a former Southern belle, as her neurotic, genteel pretensions clash with harsh reality.

The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: This play contains adult thems of sexuality and violence. For mature audiences only
