REVIEW FOR A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE - PLAY BY SEEMA AZHARUDDIN
Hyderabad-based Kartaal Productions, in association with the Consulate General of USA, is presenting a preview of the Indian adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play "A Streetcar Named Desire", on 10th and 11th July, at the Shilpa Kala Vedika.
Produced by US-based Hyderabadi Seema Azharuddin, the play has an all-Indian cast and crew, including Tollywood actress Bhoomika Chawla.
A Streetcar Named Desire is a 1947 play written by American playwright Tennessee Williams, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948. Considered a landmark play, it deals with a culture clash between 2 iconic characters. Blanche DuBois is a fading relic of the Old South, with pretensions to virtue and culture. Stanley Kowalski, a rising member of the industrial, urban working class, is brutish and dominating, even abusive to Stella.
Blanche arrives at the apartment of her sister Stella Kowalski in the Faubourg Marigny of New Orleans, on Elysian Fields Avenue; the local transportation she takes to arrive there includes a streetcar route named "Desire." The steamy urban ambience is a shock to Blanche's nerves. Blanche is welcomed with some trepidation by Stella, who fears the reaction of her husband Stanley.
