Overview

"How pretty the sky is! I ought to go there on a rocket that never comes down."

Following her “spellbinding” (Financial Times) production of 'Summer and Smoke', Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall takes on another Tennessee Williams masterpiece.

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.

Lydia Wilson ('The Duchess of Malfi') returns to the Almeida to play Blanche, with the BAFTA-winning Paul Mescal ('Normal People') as Stanley, and Anjana Vasan ('We Are Lady Parts') as Stella.

Rebecca Frecknall directs her first production at the Almeida since her multi-Olivier Award-winning production of 'Cabaret'.

Age Recommendation: 14+
This production contains xenophobic language, domestic violence, alcoholism, mental health difficulties including anxiety and depression, as well as references to sexual assault.
