The play...
Tennessee Williams' play "A Streetcar Named Desire," has been a long and happy journey to the international stage since the first opening in 1947 in New York, while Elias Kazan's film with Vivian Li and Marlon Brando remains in the pantheon of world cinema.

Year? 1947. Place? New Orleans. The story? Blanche, a professor from the South, is visiting New Orleans with her sister Stella, who lives with Stanley's man. Blanche sees Stanley, because of his origins and his irritating and raw character, elements that place Stella in a relationship dominated by raw passion. Fragile and gentle Blanche is in constant controversy with Stanley, and cohabitation with him is the starting point for unfolding his foggy past and developing a relationship of passion and hate that shakes forever the delicate balances of the heroes.

Social and personal perceptions, hidden desires and unmistakable words, injured memories and dreams unfulfilled, a fearful world "crowded" into the ... Streetcar Named Desire

The show will be on from February 2 to April 1, 2018
