Raw. Steamy. Intimate. When Blanch DuBois first darkens the step of her sister, Stella Kowalski and her husband, Stanley, her thin mask of virtue has already begun to crack. As Blanche struggles with delusions of faded Southern grandeur, she inadvertently drives a wedge between the magnetic couple and more than sparks fly. Even after 67 years, the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Streetcar Named Desire is as riveting as ever.
