"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.
