This performance will be Auslan interpreted. A Streetcar Named Desire tells the story of Blanche Dubois, a Southern Belle whose pretensions to virtue and culture only thinly mask alcoholism and delusions of grandeur.

Blanches depressing and heartbreaking past leads her to her sister Stella, in a poor but charming apartment in the French Quarter of New Orleans. However, her destructive relationship with Stellas husband triggers a wave of emotions which aim to break her.
