Production shot

Direct from the Almeida Theatre, Rebecca Frecknall’s “heartstopping” (The Telegraph) revival of Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire, transfers to the West End for six weeks only.

Paul Mescal (“tremendous” The Times) stars as Stanley alongside Patsy Ferran (“astonishingly good” Time Out) as Blanche DuBois and Anjana Vasan (“outstanding” New York Times) as Stella in this “mesmerising” (The i) production.

On a street in New Orleans, in the blistering summer heat, a sister spirals.

When Blanche unexpectedly visits her estranged sister Stella, she brings with her a past that will threaten their future. As Stella’s husband Stanley stalks closer to the truth, Blanche's fragile world begins to fracture. Reality and illusion collide and a violent conflict changes their lives forever.
