THE MILFORD ASSET MANAGEMENT SEASON

"One of the most celebrated plays of the twentieth century.” (The New York Times)

The jewel in Silo Theatre’s 20th birthday crown, Shane Bosher returns to Silo with a contemporary take on Tennessee Williams’ devastating masterpiece.

A visitor has arrived in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Crippling debt has sunk the family estate, and a fragile and desperate Blanche DuBois seeks refuge with her sister Stella and her brooding husband Stanley. It’s a sultry, hot summer and the sexual tension and resentment is rising.

Seventy years after its Broadway premiere, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE’S violent portrayal of femininity, masculinity and sexuality still feels urgent and powerful in its exploration of desire and domestic brutality.
