A Streetcar Named Desire
With 28 productions of his plays in the WTF history, Tennessee Williams and the Williamstown Theatre Festival have had a long and impressive relationship. To honor his 100th birthday, there’s no better gift than an intimate new production of his masterwork by one of today’s most inventive directors. In the close quarters of the Nikos Stage, the audience will take up temporary residence in the stifling Kowalski apartment to witness Williams’ turbulent tale of longing and delusion.
"[The] interplay between the writing and the production is exactly the kind of stage magic that speaks to the quality of Williamstown Theatre Festival."
"Steamy. Intimate, Unsettling, Loud, Boundary-breaking."
"...Jessica Hecht's fresh, intelligent and ground-breaking approach to Blanche DuBois."
"...this 'Streetcar' is one of the defining scenes for excellent actors like Hecht to shine."
