Early booking strongly advised as Ballina’s Riverside Theatre Group return to the Ballina Arts Centre stage with their production of the multi-award winning ‘A Streetcar named Desire’ by American playwright Tennessee Williams.

‘I don’t want realism, I want magic’

Blanche DuBois, a fading Southern Belle, arrives on the doorstep of her younger sister Stella in New Orleans, having lost their ancestral home ‘Belle Reve’. However, Blanche’s pretensions to virtue and veneer of self-possession only thinly mask her alcoholism and

vulnerable mental state, which she desperately attempts to conceal from her sister and brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski. Stanley, a violent and brutish man, immediately takes a dislike to Blanche, suspecting her of cheating Stella out of her inheritance. Blanche and Stanley are on a collision course, with Stanley determined to expose her vulnerable past, but at what cost to the fragile Blanche?

Directed by Ray Collins and featuring an all-local cast, this explosive performance is not to be missed.
