Sandy Actors Theatre presents A Streetcar Named Desire By Tennessee Williams Directed by Jeffrey Puukka
Summer in New Orleans. Stanley and his wife Stella are intoxicated by each other, and just beginning their lives together. Then Stella’s sister Blanche drifts in from somewhere else, like a wilting flower afraid of the sun. As she moves into their cramped apartment, the temperature climbs and temperaments clash. Suddenly there’s a growing gap between the way each saw themselves, and the life they’re actually living.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire is sly, steamy, and severe. What must be sacrificed for life to feel livable?
There will be talk back and dialogue events with Lyra Butler-Denman (Blanche), Leila Villasenor (Stella), Daniel Donlon (Stanley), Eric Island (Mitch) and Jeffrey Puukka (Director) after the matinees on Sundays September the 8th and 22nd.

“…Professional actors, say that as a director, Puukka is tops.” (Article by Olga Kharif.)
“Jeffrey Puukka has directed a gripping must-see theatre event. His cast poured their hearts, minds and bodies into this show and I’ve never heard the beauty of Tennessee’s words, nor felt the power of his anti-misogyny and anti-violence message as strongly before. This show does not shy away from brutal truths. This show magnifies the voices of two powerful sisters who endure pain, hardship and injustice. The love they feel for each other and the joy they spark is infectious. They are trying to make sense of the world and thrive. Their stories are 100% relevant today.”
