What Is The Show About
A heart-wrenching collision between illusion and reality, Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece tells the tale of former Southern Belle, Blanche, as she embarks on a turbulent journey of change, loss and frailty.
Equipped with a dark past, Blanche (Ferran) has no choice but to visit her estranged sister, Stella (Vasan), forced to meet the brutish Stanley (Mescal) who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. Will it force Blanche’s fragile world to fracture?
A Streetcar Named Desire is regarded as one of the most important plays of the twentieth century, winning countless awards since its debut in 1947. Frecknail’s brilliant revival is expected to be no different, as it’s already received critical acclaim, with the three actors’ performances dubbed “bewitching” by the Guardian and “outstanding” by Financial Times.
You can book tickets to the play online or via the Phoenix Theatre box office. Only showing for a strictly limited season, tickets are expected to sell out quickly.
2 hours and 45 minutes including an interval.
A Streetcar Named Desire is presented by special arrangement with The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee.
