Clas­sic play is set to please

West Lothian Courier - - News -

A new pro­duc­tion of the iconic Amer­i­can master­piece ‘A Street­car Named De­sire’ will trans­port West Loth­ian au­di­ences to New Or­leans when it’s per­formed at How­den Park Cen­tre next week.

A Pulitzer-prize-win­ning play by Ten­nessee Wil­liams, it was im­mor­talised in film by Mar­lon Brando and Vivi en Leigh. South­ern Belle Blanche DuBois seeks so­lace with her sis­ter, Stella, after her world starts to crum­ble. Buther down­ward spi­ral brings her face-to­face with Stella’s hus­band, Stan­ley Kowal­ski.

Direc­tor, Michael Emans, said: “I am thrilled to have as­sem­bled such an eclec­tic and highly-tal­ented cast to join me on the dark and dis­turb­ing jour­ney into the pas­sion­ate, whirl­wind world of the play. I hope that, to­gether,we will cre­ate a pow­er­ful new per­spec­tive on one of the great­est mas­ter­pieces of the­atre.”

The play will be staged at How­den Park Cen­tre on Thurs­day (September 14) at 7.30pm.
