Show times are 7:30 p.m., for Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances and 2:30 p.m., for the Sunday matinee.

Set in the New Orleans French Quarter soon after World War II, “Streetcar” deals with financial ruin, lost love and human frailties. It is summertime, the heat is oppressive and Blanche DuBois arrives unexpectedly from Mississippi to visit her sister Stella.

Almost seven decades after its Broadway premiere, this Tennessee Williams play remains a compelling and powerful portrait of desperation that addresses issues still relevant today.
