Synopsis
What happens when you cross an older yet still-attractive, overly refined Southern Belle, and a rising member of the industrial workforce?

A Streetcar Named Desire tells the story of Blanche Dubois, a Southern Belle whose pretensions to virtue and culture only thinly mask alcoholism and delusions of grandeur. Her poise is an illusion she presents to shield others (but most of all, herself) from her reality, and an attempt to continue to make herself attractive to new male suitors. Blanche’s depressing and heartbreaking past leads her to her sister Stella, in a poor but charming apartment in the French Quarter of New Orleans, however her destructive relationship with Stella’s husband Stanley triggers a wave of emotions which aim to break her.
