One of the greatest works of American theater, this taut drama presents a clash between Blanche du Bois, a fading relic of the Old South, and Stanley Kowalski, a rising member of the industrial, urban class. Blanche’s pretensions to virtue and culture only thinly mask alcoholism and delusions of grandeur. Her poise is an illusion she presents to shield others—but most of all herself—from reality in an attempt to make herself more attractive to new male suitors. This production opens the Novato Theater Company’s 2016/2017 season, and is directed by Michael Barr.
Performances on September 8 (preview), 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25,30, October 1, 2.
