A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

A Senior Directing Thesis by Amanda Klute

Performances November 12th - 14th at 7:30 in Tawes Theatre in Gibson Center for the Arts

When the arrival of her sister into her carnal lifestyle ignites a threat of destruction, Stella DuBois Kowalski must learn to balance the bestial natures of the two things she loves most: her sister, Blanche, and her husband, Stanley. Set in a torrid atmosphere where reckless behavior is rewarded and nostalgia stalks around every corner, this New Orleans drama forces us to confront our temptations and find the inner strength to survive.  A treasured classic told through a fresh, contemporary vision, this Streetcar redefines Tennessee Williams’ iconic tale for the modern stage.
