A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire - CSU Department of Theatre & Dance

A Streetcar Named Desire
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Nathan Motta


Considered one of the greatest plays written for the American Theatre, A Streetcar Named Desire is Tennessee Williams' timeless classic about delusion, reality, madness, love, and loss. Set in a small garden apartment in 1940s New Orleans, Stanley Kowalski's primitive desires violently class with Blanch Dubois' longing for a past which may or may not have ever existed. Immortalized by the film starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, this iconic play blends grittiness and lyricism to create some of the most memorable and heart-wrenching characters ever created.
