A Streetcar Named Desire

See a bold reimagining of the classic play at the Arts Theatre

First performed in 1947, the years have dulled none of the potency of Tennessee Williams’ ground-breaking masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire.

A portrait of what it means to be an outsider, the story follows the events which unfold when Blanche DuBois – anxious, but seductive and fiercely clever – arrives to stay with her sister and brutish brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski; sparking an explosive chain of events which will change them all forever.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest plays ever written, Streetcar won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948 and made stars out of a young Marlon Brando and his co-star Vivien Leigh when it was adapted for the big screen a few years later.

You can see a bold reimagining of the play at Cambridge Arts Theatre, when a production by English Touring Theatre, Theatr Clwyd and Nuffield Southampton Theatres runs from 1 to 5 May. Tickets are £19-34.
