Experience the excitement of live theatre in a vibrant new production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire from Scotland's leading touring theatre company, Rapture.
Join us for a dazzling trip to the whirlwind world of New Orleans with this sultry and sophisticated new production of a timeless American masterpiece. Fading southern belle Blanche DuBois seeks solace with her sister Stella after her world starts to crumble. But her downward spiral brings her face-to-face with Stella’s husband, the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. As temperatures soar and passions rise, Blanche and Stanley battle for Stella’s soul.
Last seen as Judy, Christopher’s mother in the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Gina Isaac leads the cast as Blanche, with Joseph Black, whose most recent work includes Cheek by Jowl’s The Winter’s Tale, as Stanley. Kazeem Tosin Amore (Hamlet in Brixton) will play Mitch and Michelle Chantelle Hopewell (Sister Act), Eunice. Multi-award winning Scottish actor Billy Mack will appear as Steve and critically-acclaimed Scottish actress and theatre-maker Julia Taudevin takes on the pivotal role of Stella. Completing the cast will be Steven Scott-Fitzgerald, Paul Kozinski, Gary Nelson and Liz Drewett.
Immortalised in the Oscar-winning film starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, this is a rare opportunity to see this iconic play, thrillingly brought to life by Rapture.
Streetcar follows in the wake of Rapture's popular and critically acclaimed productions of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Democracy.
“A Streetcar with an unsettling 21st century edge, full of awareness both of the unresolved racial tensions that still haunt western society, and of our continuing failure to protect and believe victims of sexual abuse” Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
