McDaniel College theatre arts students perform Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, which “has become an icon of American culture,” according to the Library of Congress, and is on its list of “88 Books that Shaped America.” Gené Fouché, theatre arts lecturer, directs the production.

This legendary play looks at a clash of cultures. Troubled former schoolteacher Blanche du Bois, a fading Southern Belle, moves in with her sister, Stella, and Stella’s husband, Stanley, who is part of the working class, in the French Quarter of New Orleans following World War II. Blanche’s life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which has led her to reject the realities of life. This causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the household.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors (over 60), active military members and veterans, students, as well as those with a McDaniel College ID. Note: The play contains adult content, including domestic abuse and assault.
