In the steamy French Quarter of New Orleans, an electrifying battle of wills ignites between Southern belle Blanche DuBois and her working class brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski. Nerves fraying and beauty fading, Blanche is both repelled and intrigued by Stanley’s primal brutishness—even as he threatens to reveal her darkest secrets and destroy her illusions.

Yale Repertory Theatre’s first ever production of Tennessee Williams’s Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire, is staged by Mark Rucker, whose eight previous shows at Yale Rep include Tom Stoppard’s Rough Crossing in 2008. The cast features René Augesen (last seen at Yale Rep in A Woman of No Importance) as Blanche DuBois and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood) as Stanley Kowalski.
