McDaniel College Theatre presents Tennessee Williams’s legendary drama, “A Streetcar Named Desire,” October 4 through October 7 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall. Theatre Arts faculty member Gené Fouché directs the production.
“A Streetcar Named Desire” reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
“Tennesse Williams was a genius,” notes Fouché, “and ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ is a masterpiece. It is so exciting to dig into the text and explore these characters with our students. This play was actually chosen by theatre department students and it was a smart choice.”
The cast includes McDaniel students Bryan Bowen, Torreke Evans, Andrew Frascella, Jonathan Halberstam, Kiah Hyman, Valerie Lamb, Ben Michaels, Mandy Quarantillo, Brandon Richards, Megan Smith, Alex Tolle, and Patsy Zetkulic.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors, students, military, and the McDaniel College community. For more information, call the box office at 410-857-2448.
