“How pretty the sky is! I ought to go there on a rocket that never comes down.”
On a street in New Orleans, in the blistering summer heat, a sister spirals.
When Blanche unexpectedly visits her estranged sister Stella, she brings with her a past that will threaten their future. As Stella’s husband Stanley stalks closer to the truth, Blanche’s fragile world begins to fracture. Reality and illusion collide and a violent conflict changes their lives forever.
Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall’s “heartstopping” (The Telegraph) revival of Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece transfers to the West End for a limited six week run.
Patsy Ferran (“astonishingly good” Time Out), Paul Mescal (“tremendous” The Times), Anjana Vasan (“outstanding” New York Times) and Dwane Walcott (“beautifully tender” Variety) reprise their roles in this “mesmerising revival” (The i). Further casting to be announced.
Tickets will be booked and processed by Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG). Please note Almeida credit cannot be used when booking via ATG. Booking and transaction fees may apply.
Approx. 2 hours & 45 mins, incl. an interval
