“Every man is a king.” Stanley is no exception. Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay...

Tennessee Williams' timeless classic A Streetcar Named Desire is about to be re-imagined by Director Chelsea Walker, winner of the 2017 RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award.

This bold new adaptation will be set against the intoxicating backdrop of modern day New Orleans. A Streetcar Named Desire is a raging portrayal of what it means to be an outsider in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.

A Streetcar Named Desire will open at Nuffield Southampton Theatres' brand new venue, NST City, before embarking on a national tour. 

Tickets start from £10. Book now for the best seats and prices.
