Synopsis
Blanche DuBois is a fading, but still attractive, Southern belle whose pretensions to virtue and culture only thinly mask alcoholism and delusions of grandeur. Blanche arrives at the apartment of her younger sister Stella Kowalski in New Orleans. The local transportation that gets her there includes a streetcar route named Desire. The steamy, urban ambiance is a shock to Blanche’s nerves. Stella, who fears the reaction of her husband Stanley, welcomes Blanche with some trepidation.

In contrast to both the self-effacing and deferential Stella and the pretentious refinement of Blanche, Stanley Kowalski is a force of nature: primal, brutish and sensual. He dominates Stella in every way and is physically and emotionally abusive.

The arrival of Blanche upsets her sister and brother-in-law’s relationship dynamics, resulting in a series of emotional, physical and sexually abusive confrontations.

The story ends with Blanche suffering a nervous breakdown and Stanley having her committed to a mental institution.





HISTORY 1947-2013 | Tennessee Williams’ A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

A Streetcar Named Desire was written by American Playwright Tennessee Williams and was first performed on Broadway on December 3, 1947. It subsequently went on to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948. The Broadway production was directed by Elia Kazan and starred Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden.

The London production opened in 1949 with Bonar Colleano, Vivien Leigh and Renee Asherson. It was directed by Laurence Olivier.

In 1951 a film adaptation of the play won 4 Academy Awards.

A Streetcar Named Desire is considered one of the greatest classics of Western Theatre and it has been the subject of much debate, re-stagings and adaptations the world over.

2014 | Joe Hasham’s A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE the ballet

There have been several ballet adaptations over the years. Some successful, some not. The point of difference between Joe Hasham’s adaptation and those that have come before will be a convergence of dance genres that includes Malaysian/Japanese collaboration.
The role of Blanche DuBois will be played by a prima ballerina and her performance will be totally classical ballet oriented; the rest of the characters will be performing a ‘la contemporary and/or modern.

This decision stems from the fact that the character of Blanche Dubois is frail, brittle, cultured and refined in comparison to everyone else around her.
