MJC presents A Streetcar Named Desire

Modesto Junior College will present Tennessee Williams’ dazzling masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire, Dec 1-Dec 10th in the Little Theatre on Modesto Junior College East Campus.

A Streetcar Named Desire, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tennessee Williams was first performed on Broadway on December 3, 1947.  The first production starred Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, and Kim Hunter. It is one of the most critically acclaimed plays of the twentieth century and Tennessee Williams’ most popular work. The play dramatizes the experiences of Blanche DuBois, a former Southern Belle who, after encountering a series of personal losses, leaves her once-prosperous situation to move into a shabby apartment in New Orleans rented by her younger sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley. The play dives into what happens when reality and illusion collide, and clashing characters exist in a confined environment. 

The production is directed by Lynette Borrelli-Glidewell with costumes by Mary Reilly, set design by Ty Van Helton, and lighting by Kevin Saunders.

Leading the cast is Sarah Wiseman as Blanche, Alex Casas as Stanley, and Jenn Pike as Stella, rounding out the cast is Lawrence Smith as Harold Mitchell, Amber Ward and Genaro Bernal as Eunice, and Steve Hubbell, Julian Steffans as the Young Collector, Levent Cakaloglu as Pablo, Lorelei Martinez as the Flower Vendor, Raelynn Driscoll as the Nurse and Tim Glidewell Sr. as the Doctor.
