A Streetcar Named Desire

1 – 29 March 2025
Crucible Theatre, Sheffield

By Tennessee Williams 
Directed by Josh Seymour

“How strange that I should be called a destitute woman! When I have all of these treasures locked in my heart.”

In the sultry back streets of 1940s New Orleans, fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois seeks solace with her estranged sister Stella.

Blanche’s delicate sensibilities create instant suspicion in Stella’s unrestrained husband Stanley, as they collide in a struggle for Stella’s heart. As their simmering feud escalates, past truths begin to surface and both sisters must choose between fantasy and reality.   

Passions ignite and illusions are shattered in Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
