Some plays can be summed up in an image, others a phrase, but only one masterpiece can be summarized with a scream: "Stelllaaa!!!" That masterpiece, of course, is none other than Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley. Fragile Blanche and brutish, temperamental Stanley immediately clash, and tensions further escalate when the two are left alone together after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth. Featuring lush set design and a whole new perspective on the classic story, director Travis Ammons will breathe new life into Williams' dramatic play when it takes to the stage of Houston's The Kaleidoscope.
