A Streetcar Named Desire

Back by popular demand, this critically acclaimed production returns to the Soulpepper stage.

As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with a brutal, unforgiving reality. Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece is a raging portrayal of what it means to be an outsider, in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.

(This) Streetcar travels the distance. Soulpepper continues its winning streak with the fine production of A Streetcar Named Desire…offering classic tragedy powerfully performed. A successful performance of Streetcar should move an audience to tears. Soulpepper does not disappoint.
