A Streetcar Named Desire at Trustus Theatre

Trustus Theatre presents A Streetcar Named Desire February 7 – 22. Blanche DuBois, a schoolteacher from KY, arrives in New Orleans & takes a streetcar named “Desire” to the French Quarter, where her sister, Stella, & Stella’s husband, Stanley Kowalski, live barely above squalor. Blanche’s affectations of refinement set her immediately at odds with blue-collar Stanley, who is further incensed when he learns his wife’s aristocratic inheritance has been forfeited to creditors. Believing that Blanche has sold the estate for personal profit, Stanley disdains & demeans Blanche, who fights back in the only way she knows: with her genteel femininity. Performances are February 7-9, 13-16, & 19-22; Sundays at 3pm, with all others at 8pm.
