A Streetcar Named Desire + ACANSA

This fall, ACANSA, in partnership with Argenta Community Theater, is proud to present Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Seeking solace from her crumbling world, Blanche Dubois arrives at her sister, Stella’s, apartment bringing her face to face with the menacing masculinity of Stanley Kowalski. Directed by Ben Grimes, the production is a raw exploration of family, sensuality, gender roles, and survival. Featuring a powerhouse cast of local talent, this production is not to be missed.

Lament for the velvety moths, for the moths were lovely. Often their tender thoughts, for they thought of me, eased the neurotic ills that haunt the day.” Tennessee Williams, Lament for the Moths
