Experience the excitement of live theatre in Rapture's vibrant production of Tennessee Williams', "A Streetcar Named Desire".

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.

 

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".
