A Streetcar Named Desire is an outrageous play, filled with outrageous dreams, dreamers, and violence — both physical and psychological. The play deals with one of the most sickening human impulses: the desire to destroy the outsider, the foreigner, the one whose lifestyle is different from your own. But it is not a cold play. Over its roughest parts is stretched a skin of love and sex that disarms the violence, at least until morning. Slaps melt into embraces, bruises get caressed. The characters desire each other, but even more, they desire peace. Peace from the voices chattering endlessly in their heads. Peace from their past. And hopefully, an answer to the question of how to travel through this world: living together is dangerous, but living alone is impossible. So which will it be?
