A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Krysta Dennis
Undoubtedly one of Tennessee Williams finest works, Streetcar takes up residence in the courtyard of Albany Distilling Company from June 22-July 8, 2019. Williams tale of alienation and loneliness in New Orleans' sultry, sweltering summer heat will come alive in the warmth of downtown Albanys summer, with cocktails available from the distillery to keep audiences cool. The play has enduring resonance due to its treatment of manipulation and victimization -- its main character, Blanche DuBois, alternates between victim and homewrecker. She is the faded, shattered daughter of the South, (Ward Morehouse) and a representation of a long line of decadent Southern aristocrats (Richard Watts) who lies to others because she cannot keep from lying to herself. Blanche rejects the reality of who she is and the world she lives in. Williams demonstrates the danger of letting the dream world replace the real one: The real world has the power to destroy the fantasy, along with the person wrapped up in it.
