From Dramatists Play Service:
Williams' classic drama, set in the French Quarter of 1940's New Orleans, exposes the delusions
of fragile Southern belle Blanche DuBois, when she comes to live with her sister, Stella, and
her brother-in-law Stanley. The pressure brought to bear upon Blanche by Stella, intensified by
the earthy and extremely "normal" Stanley, leads to a revelation of her self-delusion and, in
the end, to madness.
"This celebrated play had a long and successful run on Broadway and the road. A tragic and
effective drama which ranks as one of the greatest in our theatre." - Dramatists Play Service
