“A Streetcar Named Desire”

The Footlight Players will perform the Tennessee Williams classic, “A Streetcar Named Desire,” from January 22 to February 7 at the historic Footlight Players Theatre, 20 Queen St. in Charleston. Widely considered a landmark drama, this play deals with a culture clash between two symbolic characters. In the play, Blanche DuBois moves to New Orleans to live with her sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski. Blanche is a pretentious, fading Southern belle. Stanley is a rising member of the industrial, urban immigrant class. Who will win when these two dramatically different worlds collide? Tickets are $30 for adults; $27 for seniors/military; $20 for students. Performances are Friday through Sunday, with an additional performance Thursday February 4th.
