Synopsis

Down on her luck, high school teacher Blanche DuBois makes her way to New Orleans to stay with her sister, Stella. Blanche has the manner of a fading Southern belle, seemingly refined and frivolous but also terribly jittery and self-conscious about aging. Desperately clinging to her memories (or maybe fantasies) of romantic grandeur, her presence in the dingy apartment provokes uncontrollable tensions - especially with her brutal brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, who is prone to bursts of violence and drunkenly taunts Blanche about her snobbery. With Stella expecting a baby and Blanche finding companionship with another lonely soul, life glimmers momentarily, until grim, harsh realities descend on the barely-stable household. This is a powerful adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play featuring much of the same cast as in the original Broadway production.
