Set in New Orleans during the late 1940s, the play features some of the most famous characters in American theatre. From Stanley Kowalski to Blanche DuBois, the characters embody passion and desperation, as the action plays out in a harsh world where no one is left untouched by its brutality. As Dr. Paul Newman, director, notes, “It is poetry vs. human nature; neither stands a chance.”
The Oct. 1 performance will include a birthday party for the late playwright with complimentary cake and coffees served at intermission.
