A Streetcar Named Desire

Spring Classic
A Streetcar Named Desire 

Directed by Adam Hester

A passionate, potent classic of modern American Theatre, Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire is a disturbing metaphor for the deteriorating human condition of modern times, one that is embodied as a brutal world where death collides with desire and illusion clashes with reality.  In the wake of recent events, this production is a haunting requiem for the New Orleans of yesteryear.
