In Tennessee Williams' A Street Car Named Desire, fading southern belle Blanche Dubois
depends on the kindness of strangers and is adrift in the modern world. When she arrives to
stay with her sister Stella in a crowded, boisterous corner of New Orleans, her delusions of
grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley. Eventually
their violent collision course causes Blanche's fragile sense of identity to crumble,
threatening to destroy her sanity and her one chance of happiness.
