Tennessee Williams has a way with his women. His most poignant creation may be the
narcissistic Blanche DuBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic
illusions, which lead her to reject the realities of life with which she is faced
and which she consistently ignores.
With a story that pits her false gentility against the earthiness of her working class
sister Stella and her short-tempered brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, this American
classic is a collision of character that keeps audiences holding on tight from beginning
to the merciless end.
