Williams’ classic 1948 Pulitzer Prize winning play chronicles the last stages of Blanche du Bois’ mental break as she steps away from past turmoil and scandal of disillusioned love affairs and attempts to start new by moving in with her sister, Stella, and her average working class husband, Stanley, in the bustling French Quarter of New Orleans. Immediately, Blanche finds herself further thrust into a world of turmoil, her past, the family’s financial ruin and finally her own revelation of her tragic self to madness.  A Streetcar Named Desire is Tennessee Williams at his psychological and poetic best.

All Center Stage Theatre performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.

SSB Auditorium

Film description from imdb.com:

Although living a comfortable life in Salon-de-Provence, a charming town in the south of France, Julie has been feeling depressed for a while. To please her, Philippe Abrams, a post office administrator, her husband, tries to obtain a transfer to a seaside town on the French Riviera, at any cost. The trouble is that he is caught red-handed while trying to scam an inspector. Philippe is immediately banished to the distant unheard of town of Bergues, in the far north of France. Leaving his child and wife behind, the crucified man leaves for his frightening destination, a dreadfully cold place inhabited by hard-drinking, unemployed rednecks, speaking an incomprehensible dialect called Ch'ti. Philippe soon realizes that all these ideas were nothing but prejudices and that Bergues is not synonymous with hell.

This International Education Week and Projections International Film Series event is free and open to the public.
