Title of A Streetcar Named Desire with the image of a dress bodice made of worn, yellowed lace

A Streetcar Named Desire is one of the most highly acclaimed works of the American Theatre.  Illusion and harsh reality collide when Blanche DuBois is forced to live in close quarters with her brutish and insensitive brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.  Their explosive clash results in a gripping tale that explores love, lust, class struggle, and the fragility of sanity.  This faithful and searing production of a dramatic masterpiece should not be missed.
