October 4-7 (Thursday-Sunday) & 9-11 (Tuesday-Thursday)

Widely considered Williams' masterwork, this play was a landmark achievement when it premiered on Broadway in 1947 and won the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  Set in the French Quarter of hot and steamy New Orleans, the play deals with a culture clash between Blanche DuBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by romantic illusions which lead her to reject the realities of her life, and Stanley Kowalski, a rising member of the industrial, urban working class.  When Blanche comes to live with her sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley, she is forced to confront a revelation of her tragic self-delusion.
