A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

Written by Tennessee Williams • Directed by Students of Advanced Directing Artistic Direction by Prof. Larry Biederman

A fragile Blanche moves to New Orleans to live in a dingy apartment with her sister Stella and unforgiving brother-in-law, Stanley.

Temperaments clash, sparks fly, and they all begin a complicated, sadistic dance where the only possible outcome is pain.
