Newton, NC – The Green Room Community Theatre is excited to announce the opening of A Streetcar Named Desire, the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Tennessee Williams. Considered one of the greatest plays written for the American Theatre, A Streetcar Named Desire is Williams’ timeless classic about delusion, reality, madness, love, and loss.
Set in a small garden apartment in 1940s New Orleans, Stanley Kowalski’s primitive desires violently clash with Blanch Dubois’ longing for a past which may or may not have ever existed. Immortalized by the film starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, this iconic play blends grittiness and lyricism to create some of the most memorable and heart-wrenching characters ever created.
Please note: the subject matter of this show is of a more mature nature.
Production dates for A Streetcar Named Desire are Jan. 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28, 2018. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30pm and Sunday shows are at 3:00pm.
A Streetcar Named Desire will be performed in the smaller, more intimate Black Box Theatre located in the Old Post Office Playhouse with its entrance on West A Street. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, January 5. Ticket prices are $16 for adults and $14 for Seniors & Students.
