P.T.D. Productions offers the chance to catch 'A Streetcar Named Desire'
The Dubois family fortune has finally been frittered away. Blanche, a Southern belle past her prime and addicted to alcohol, has no way of supporting herself; so, she comes to live with her sister Stella and brother-in-law in the two room Kowalski appartment. Stella Kowalski describes Stanley as "a different species," while Blanche describes him as "downright bestial." He will stop at nothing to get Blanche out of his apartment and out of his marriage.
When first produced in 1947, "Streetcar" was a sensation, catapulting its leading actors (notably, Marlon Brando) to stardom. Of that original performance, Arthur Miller said, "A writer's soul, a single voice was almost miraculously enveloping the stage. This play made it possible for the stage to express any and all things and to do so beautifully." Directed by Joseph York, with Sarah Burcon, Andy Burt, Mouse Courtois, Rick Katon, Wendy Ascione, Phil Martinez, Erin Baldwin, Zach Damon, Adrienne Frank, and Jim Dowling.
