One of the most important and influential plays of the 20th century, A Streetcar Named Desire, transformed modern drama and confirmed Tennessee Williams’ reputation as the greatest poet/playwright of the American stage.
In celebration of the play’s 75th anniversary, Abrahamse and Meyer Productions brought a radical, revisionist twist to this iconic, Pulitzer Prize-winning play in a searing production that turned up the heat in this already scorching play.
What the Press said:
"Abrahamse and Meyer Productions’ electrifying staging of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, A Streetcar Named Desire, is beautiful -visually and aurally. The staging (set, costumes, lighting, sound) is breathtaking. The four actors deliver flawless performances with authentic accent work." THE CAPE ROBYN
"Rightly considered the jewel in the crown of Tennessee Williams’ considerable oeuvre, A Streetcar Named Desire lends itself (like the works of Shakespeare) to innovative staging that injects fresh vitality into the familiar script without betraying the original. With which in mind, 75 years after the play’s première, A&M Productions have pushed the envelope in their presentation of this bleak, brilliant and moody chronicle of a middle-aged woman’s psychological disintegration. The result is riveting." WEEKEND SPECIAL
