One of Chicago's foremost directors takes on one of the country's greatest plays. After staging last season's nationally-acclaimed production of 'Picnic,' David Cromer returns to Writers' Theatre. Hailed a "genius" by The Wall Street Journal and fresh from his Broadway debut, Cromer directs Tennessee Williams' winning drama, 'A Streetcar Named Desire.' Blanche DuBois arrives unexpectedly on the doorstep of her sister Stella and her explosive brother-in-law Stanley. Over the course of one hot and steamy New Orleans summer, Blanche's fragile facade slowly crumbles, wreaking havoc on Stella and Stanley's already turbulent relationship. Embodying the turmoil and drama of a changing nation, 'A Streetcar Named Desire' strips Williams' tortured characters of their illusions, leaving a wake of destruction in their path.
