Reviews

 ‘Streetcar’ is a true classic and as they say in the sports world ‘Footlight knocked this one out of the park’. A wonderful gem. – Lowcountry Today

Synopsis

The Tennessee Williams classic, “A Streetcar Named Desire” roars through the Footlight Players Theatre to start the second half of the season.

Widely considered a landmark drama, this play deals with a culture clash between two symbolic characters, Blanche DuBois and her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Blanch is a a pretentious, fading, yet still attractive, Southern belle. Stanley is a rising member of the industrial, urban immigrant class.

Who will win when worlds collide?
