By Tennessee Williams
 
Fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois moves to New Orleans where her sister, Stella, and her brutish brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski, barely live above squalor in the French Quarter. Blanche’s affectations of refinement set her immediately at odds with blue-collar Stanley, who is further incensed when he learns his wife’s aristocratic inheritance—the family estate—has been forfeited to creditors. In Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, the Kowalskis’ dingy apartment becomes a pressure cooker of sensuality and class tensions, ultimately erupting in some of the most iconic dramatic moments seen on the modern stage.
