A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams at the Athens Festival
The legendary streetcar stops in Athens, Greece, for Blanche DuBois to alight. The play that made Tennessee Williams famous (New York, 1947) is haunted by legendary performances on stage and screen. Adapted from Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire and directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski with Isabelle Huppert as Blanche DuBois, the play will be presented at Pireos 260, Stage H, from 2 to 5 July as part of the Athens Festival.
Warlikowski sheds light on the heroine's inner world in parallel with the action as she is destroyed by the clash with her sister's husband: innovative and poetic, the Polish director captures her face and its deep lines on video and adds memories from her readings.
Don't miss the play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams and directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski at Pireos 260, Stage H, in Athens, Greece.
