A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, Tennessee Williams

NATIONAL THEATRE - STAGE "NIKOS KOURKOULOS"

PRESENTATION

A Streetcar Named Desire

Tennessee Williams

From 12.11.2021 to 02.02.2022

ZILLER BUILDING - STAGE "NIKOS KOURKOULOS"

New Orleans at the end of the 1940s. The passionate relationship of Stella and Stanley Kowalski, two people from different worlds - Stella the daughter of a decadent family of southern aristocrats, Stanley a coarse second-generation Polish immigrant - takes place in an attractively down-at-heel part of the city set against a melancholy jazz soundtrack. That is, until Blanche Dubois, Stella's sister, turns up at their house. Blanche is weighed down by the baggage of desperation, family burdens and a fragile psyche that means she prefers to live in a world of fantasy rather than the painful reality. Williams's multi-layered play is a study of frustration, failure and the relentless passage of time, reflecting a harsh world that rejects or destroys anyone who cannot fit into it.

The play established Tennessee Williams as one of the world's most important writers. Written in 1947, it premiered at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York in a production directed by Elia Kazan, and won the Pulitzer Prize. In 1951 it became a worldwide success when it was adapted for the screen by the same director in a film starring Vivien Leigh as Blanche and Marlon Brando as Stanley. Since then, it has been produced on innumerable occasions around the world, although this is the first time it has been staged by the National Theatre of Greece.
