Tennessee Williams 1947 Pulitzer Prize winning play A Streetcar Named Desire had a hugely acclaimed revival at London’s Donmar Warehouse from July to October in 2009.
It featured Oscar winner Rachel Weisz as the drunken, pretentious Southern belle, Blanche DuBois; Ruth Wilson as her self-effacing sister, Stella Kowalski and Elliot Cowan as Stanley Kowalski, the primal, brutish husband. All three signed for me in September 2009.
The first West End staging starred Vivien Leigh and was directed by her husband Laurence Olivier in 1949.
Both Rachel (Best Actress) and Ruth (Best Supporting Actress) won Olivier awards for their performances.
