TEHRAN – American playwright Tennessee Williams’ acclaimed play “A Streetcar Named Desire” will be performed by an Iranian troupe at the Niavaran Cultural Center on Wednesday.

Mohsen Hajnoruzi will direct the play translated by Marjan Bakhtminoo.

The play is about Blanche DuBois who travels from the small town of Laurel, Mississippi, to the New Orleans French Quarter to live with her younger, married sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski after the loss of her family home, Belle Reve, to creditors.

“A Streetcar Named Desire” that received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948 is often regarded as among the finest plays of the 20th century, and is considered by many to be Williams’ greatest. 

A cast composed of Azita Talebi, Soheil Qannadan, Mehzad Tavakkoli, Mohammad Soltanpur, Fatemeh Shams, Ashkan Kazemi, Mahta Ahmadi, Sadra Mohammadi, Mehdi Sarabi, and Hajnoruzi will stage the play.

The troupe performed the play at Tehran’s Jamshid Mashayekhi Theater during November 2016.
