About A Streetcar Named Desire 

On a hot and sickly summer's day in New Orleans, a fading Southern beauty begins to spiral.

After losing the DuBois family plantation in Mississippi, Blanche DuBois packs her bags and moves in with her estranged sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley at their run-down apartment in New Orleans, bringing with her a past that threatens the future. Blanche's refined sensitivities are insulted by Stanley's crude, animalistic behaviour. As he gains closer to the truth - she becomes tense and defensive, teetering on the edge of a mental breakdown. As Blanche’s fragile world begins to unravel at the seams, reality and illusion collide in a violent conflict that will change their lives forever.

The cast and creatives of A Streetcar Named Desire 

The starring role of Blanche DuBois will be played by Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke), with the BAFTA-winning Paul Mescal (Normal People) as Stanley, and Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts) as Stella.
