“Every man is a king.” Stanley is no exception. Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay…

This bold new adaptation is set against the intoxicating backdrop of modern day New Orleans. A Streetcar Named Desire is a raging portrayal of what it means to be an outsider in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.

Nominated for the UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production 2018.
