"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

Challenge yourself to one of the most compelling experiences of the American theatre as the passion, fury, and poignancy of Tennessee Williams' riveting masterpiece are unleashed during the Huntington's season finale.

Linda Gehringer returns to the Huntington to portray the tormented Blanche DuBois, a lapsed Southern belle who clings to illusion as her only defense. Blanche makes her last desperate stand in the French Quarter home of her sister Stella and fiery brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Against a sultry New Orleans backdrop of smoky jazz haunts, all-night poker sessions, and steamy summer nights, Blanche and Stanley engage in an unforgettable personal battle for survival, where seduction and violence are the explosive weapons of choice. This powerful and mesmerizing American drama is not to be missed!
