A Streetcar Named Desire

110522-SOA-Streetcar.jpg

A Streetcar Named Desire will be performed from November 12, 2022 to the 20th at the El Paso Community College Transmountain Forum Theatre.

The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche DuBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure intensifies when she goes to live with her sister and her husband in New Orleans and leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

Here to tell us about it is director Ted Karber.
