Rebecca Frecknall’s wonderful, textured revival of Summer and Smoke was a thing of edgy beauty. Now she turns her attention to another more familiar Tennessee Williams play. Lydia Wilson, last seen at the Almeida as a riveting Duchess of Malfi, plays Blanche, the ageing southern belle who wants life to always be magic and refuses to deal with grimy reality. Anjana Vasan is her sister Stella, and Paul Mescal plays Stanley, a role often associated with Marlon Brando. Frecknall’s Summer and Smoke was revelatory, and while that might be a more difficult trick to pull off with this much more famous play, the director—who was at the helm of the recent revival of Cabaret with Jessie Buckley and Eddie Redmayne—has proved herself a mistress of reinvention.

About A Streetcar Named Desire

Oscar nominee Paul Mescal (Aftersun, Normal People) stars alongside Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke) and Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts) in the West End transfer of the Almeida Theatre's monumental new production, directed by the Olivier Award-winning Rebecca Frecknall (Cabaret). "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. Oscar nominee Paul Mescal ('Normal People') stars as Stanley, alongside Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke) as Blanche, and Anjana Vasan ('We Are Lady Parts') as Stella. 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.
