This Friday marks the opening performance of Loyola’s production of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” The show will run from April 13th – April 22nd. Tickets range in price from $7 – $15.
Below is a synopsis from the Loyola University Department of Fine Arts webpage:
“Set in the steamy streets of New Orleans, Tennessee Williams’ drama offers an atmospheric portrait of desperation, deception, and sexual chemistry. When aging southern belle Blanche DuBois comes to the French Quarter to live with her sister, Stella, she gets caught in a dangerous web that includes Stella’s husband, Stanley Kowalski. Physically and emotionally compelling, he dominates his wife and clashes with Blanche over the sisters’ inheritance. While running from her own troubled past, Blanche fails to accept that she’s lost everything in this Pulitzer Prize-winning portrait of complex characters in a moment of tragic flux.”
