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 A Streetcar Named Desire, the Pulitzer-winning drama by Tennessee Williams, which was famously adapted into a feature film featuring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh. 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 Stanley immediately clash, and tensions only escalate when the two are left alone in the house after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth. The Group Rep presents A Streetcar Named Desire directed by L. Flint Esquerra. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Under Sherry Netherland’s watchful eye, both actresses hit the jackpot theatrically as they meticulously explore the intelligent issues at hand.” -broadwayworld.com (Critic’s Pick)
“Margulies’ writing is poetic and soulful and carries a resonant spine. It is rare for a male playwright to write a play about two women, but Margulies pulls it of beautifully … there is virtually no misstep in this creatively staged production of a quietly powerful play which proves once more that the Group Rep is a company on a definite ascendancy.” -patch.com
“A tender and funny view into the privileged and insular world of the New York writing life … the joy of this play is the insightful dialogue played perfectly by these two fabulous and talented performers, which is a pleasure to watch from the happy beginning to its bone-chilling end.” -Topanga Messenger
" Intelligent, insightful, and involving … this is an intriguing play." -Tolucan Times
