Archived: A Streetcar Named Desire

A Silo Theatre Production

Shane Bosher returns to Silo with a contemporary take on Tennessee Williams’ devastating masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire to celebrate Silo Theatre's 20th birthday.

A visitor has arrived in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Crippling debt has sunk the family estate, and a fragile and desperate Blanche DuBois seeks refuge with her sister Stella and her brooding husband Stanley. It’s a sultry, hot summer and the sexual tension and resentment is rising.

Seventy years after its Broadway premiere, A Streetcar Named Desire's violent portrayal of femininity, masculinity and sexuality still feels urgent and powerful in its exploration of desire and domestic brutality.

See it live at Q Theatre from 24 August to 16 September 2017.
