Presents A Streetcar Named Desire By Tennessee Williams


This is the haunting story of a beautiful woman who was betrayed by love. Blanche DuBois, tormented by the memory of her tragic marriage and the scandal she had precipitated in the small Southern town of her birth, flees to New Orleans to find refuge with her sister. But her sensual, crude brother-in-law resents her presence, and in a violent, passionate rage, exposes her past and cuts off her last chance of escape from the squalid misery of her life. Tennessee Williams is one of America's greatest playwrights, and certainly the greatest ever from the South.


Director Richard Harder has brought together a superlative cast of professionals to bring you what I can only describe as a stunning, heart-wrenching, and provocative production of the Tennessee Williams classic. The acting is quite excellent as you would expect from professional level actors.”
— Charles Jarrett, Rossmore Review, June 25, 2007

“Off Broadway West’s new production of this American classic is grippingly effective at bringing out these elements and convincingly performed with distinct characterizations. The complex mix of reactions and responses among the characters is richly textured. In Act II the tension filled the air like a smothering humid summer heat.”
— Albert Goodwyn, SF Bay Times, June 14, 2007

“The audience experiences the poignant contrast between a widow trapped in the past by her personal history, and a wife (”Stella, Stella for star”) who has chosen to live in the present and be open to a different future.” — Jeanne Powell, LABH, June 20.2007
