'Streetcar Named Desire' in Fall River

Posted

Considered by many to be the greatest of Tennessee Williams’ dramas, "A Streetcar Named Desire" is set in New Orleans and tells the story of the DuBois family's fall from grandeur. Much like the old south itself, Blanche, the Grand Dame, has seen better times. She has taken up residence in the French Quarter with her sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski, far from the stately columns and life at her former Mississippi home of Belle Reve. She is also searching for happiness and love, at times wherever she can find them. Her move to the Kowalskis brings a tension that escalates and, eventually, explodes.
