Caedmon is proud to release this archival full-cast recording of Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire.

Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister Stella's New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past but her ethereal spirit irks Stella's husband, the loutish Stanley Kowalski. Crudely, relentlessly, he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed.

This atmospheric recording of Tennessee Williams's powerful classic stars Rosemary Harris and James Farentino as Blanche and Stanley roles they performed to acclaim in a smash revival at New York's Lincoln Center. Download and start listening now!

    " Williams is a master. Nothing more needs to be said. "

    " Another book that we acted out in my American English class. I didn't have a major part but I remember Blanche so well. I felt so sorry for this woman. The book itself is fantastic. It made me have this urge to read other books by Williams like The Rose Tattoo and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which I admit I have only seen the movie to. "

    " A fascinating story that is far and away more engaging and developed than *The Glass Menagerie*. That said, the last two or four scenes are rushed and make some leaps with regard to character that I don't quite believe. "

    " Mooi compact toneelstuk dat zich afspeelt in New Orleans. Gaat in essentie over de (lamentabele) vrouwelijke conditie. Hoofdfiguur Blance is het typevoorbeeld van de neurotische vrouw, Stanley van het alfamannetje. "
