SYNOPSIS OF PLAY
This classic drama follows troubled former schoolteacher Blanche DuBois, the last of a once revered aristocratic Southern family. She moves to New Orleans with her sister and brother-in-law Stella and Stanley Kowalski after losing Belle Reve the family estate. Blanche is a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic delusions, which lead her to reject the realities of life with which she is faced. Her sister Stella has left her refined upbringing behind in marrying, what Blanche sees as an unsophisticated and low bred man, Stanley. The conflict between Blanche’s delusions and Stanley’s coarse reality leads to the shattering of these delusions and causes her to descend into madness.
This is a non-Equity, non-paying production. Performers of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Age ranges are approximate and may be adjusted based on the auditions. Southern accents are encouraged but only required for Blanche and Stella. There will be opportunities for those cast in the smaller multiple roles to stand out.
