      A Street Car Named Desire

      Full productions of classic plays are rare these days. How many plays do you know by name but never seen staged? How many are familiar from tiny snippets which have entered contemporary popular culture. The tortured cry “Stella!” is just such a famous fragment.


      This production will show you the full story behind that famous line.


      'A Streetcar Named Desire', premiered to huge success in 1947 and established Tennessee Williams as the premiere American playwright of his generation. This steamy and shocking landmark drama, recreated as the immortal film starring Marlon Brando, is one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century.


      Warragul Theatre Company are proud to build on the reputation they have earned for strong dramatic productions of classics like 'Measure for Measure' and 'Much Ado about Nothing'. Staging 'Streetcar...', they turn their attention to a modern classic. It is a rich and moving tragedy of change, delusion and loss set in the steamy French quarter of New Orleans in the years after WW2.


      On a streetcar named Desire, Blanche DuBois travels from the railroad station in New Orleans to a street named Elysian Fields, where her sister, Stella, pregnant and married, lives in a run-down apartment building in the old French Quarter. Having lost her husband, parents, teaching position, and old family home, Blanche has nowhere to turn but to her one remaining close relative.


      Her delusions of grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley Kowalski. Eventually their violent collision course causes Blanche's fragile sense of identity to crumble, threatening to destroy her sanity and her one chance of happiness.
