A Streetcar Named Desire

Performed from Tue 24 — Sat 28 Apr


By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Chelsea Walker
Designed by Georgia Lowe

“Every man is a king.” Stanley Kowalski is no exception.

Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay.
Anxious, seductive and fiercely clever, Blanche is just about keeping it together.
But her arrival threatens his entire way of life.

As the temperature soars and passions intensify, a burning desire threatens to tear their world apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece is a raging portrayal of what it means to be an outsider, in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.

A Nuffield Southampton Theatres, English Touring Theatre and Theatre Clwyd co-production supported by a grant from the Royal Theatrical Support Trust.

What the public say

A brilliant production in every way. A totally absorbing, disturbing but remarakable adaption of the William's play. Thanks to all involved and to the New Wolsey for bringing powerful drama to Ipswich. Jan
