Every man is a king’. Stanley Kowalski is no exception.

Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay. Anxious, seductive and fiercely clever, Blanche is just about keeping it together. But her arrival threatens Stanley’s entire way of life.

As the temperature soars and passions intensify, a burning desire threatens to tear their world apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece is a fiery portrayal of what it means to be an outsider in a society we’re all desperate to belong.

An English Touring Theatre, Theatr Clwyd and Nuffield Southampton Theatres co-production supported by a grant from The Royal Theatrical Support Trust under its RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award scheme.
