A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennesse Williams, Civic Rep at New City Theatre Jan 2 - 25, 2015

CIVIC REP's first play to be produced in residence at New City Theatre was a re-imagining of the modern classic A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. 

Williams called Streetcar "a plea for the understanding of the delicate people.” Williams dramatizes the plight of the delicate people in a world that is indifferent and at times hostile to tenderness, warning us in this beautiful, tragic story, that 'if we don't watch out, the brutes will take over.'

A plague has stricken the moths, the moths are dying, their bodies are flakes of bronze on the carpets lying.  Enemies of the delicate everywhere have breathed a pestilent mist into the air. -Excerpt from the poem, 'A Lament for the Moths' 
by Tennessee Williams
