SYNOPSIS

An award winning performance by Gillian Anderson as Blanche du Bois in the critically acclaimed version of A Streetcar Named Desire, the Tennessee Williams masterpiece

As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski…

Fresh from an award-winning performance at the Young Vic in London, Gillian Anderson reprises her role of Blanche DuBois in this critically acclaimed version of A Streetcar Named Desire at the newly opened St Ann’s Warehouse, New York.


This daring and imaginative staging of the Tennessee Williams masterpiece by visionary director Benedict Andrews, who won a Critics’ Circle Award for his production of Three Sisters, became the fastest-selling in the Young Vic’s history.

Bruno Wang Productions has supported both productions; Mr Wang says: “This is a compelling theatrical event. Truly unmissable.”

Adds Gillian Anderson: “As a company, we are utterly thrilled to be transferring this extraordinary play to New York City. It is a uniquely imagined production and St Ann's is the perfect place to stage it.”

And David Lan, Artistic Director of the Young Vic confirms: “The Young Vic is extremely proud to be sharing Benedict’s breakthrough production with New York audiences.”
