SYNOPSIS: The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche duBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely “normal” young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
This Production will feature usage of multimedia projections as well as some moments of brief and partial nudity. The focus of this production will be on the sources leading to Blanche DuBois’s demise and the relationships between the three main characters. This production is a re-imagined backstory for all of the characters involved without changing the text. Giving a new and insightful look at the things that shape our psyche.
