A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams’ iconic award winning play, was first produced in 1947 and was later made into an Academy award-winning film.

It describes the decline and fall of a fading Southern Belle, Blanche Dubois, who leaves behind a privileged background and moves into a shabby New Orleans apartment with her younger sister, Stella. The main themes of the play are loneliness, frustration and the desperate need for communication by people who are society’s misfits.

After playing Stanley in a 1969 production at the National Theatre in Perth, Australia, director Joe Hasham went on to direct a critically-acclaimed staging for The Actors Studio in 1993 which sold out even before opening night. He made waves again with a bold dance drama adaptation of the play in 2014 which starred two Japanese prima ballerinas.

He will now be directing a Mandarin adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play featuring an A list team of actors including Ruby Faye, Aki, John Tan, Tan Li Yang and more.
