“Every man is a king.” Stanley is no exception.

Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay.

Anxious, seductive and fiercely clever, Blanche is just about keeping it together. But her arrival threatens Stanley’s entire way of life.

As the summer heats up, and the games turn savage, a burning desire threatens to tear their world apart.

Directed by Chelsea Walker, winner of the 2017 RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award, this bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ timeless classic is a raging portrayal of what it means to be an outsider in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.
