Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister Stella's New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past but her ethereal spirit irks Stella's husband, the loutish Stanley Kowalski. Crudely, relentlessly, he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed.
This atmospheric recording of Tennessee Williams's powerful classic stars Rosemary Harris and James Farentino as Blanche and Stanley roles they performed to acclaim in a smash revival at New York's Lincoln Center.

Great performance of an excellent play. A lot of heavy themes including empowerment (or lack thereof) of women, the need for illusions under duress, the consequences of insensitivity and lack of patience on a vulnerable person, and on and on...Highly recommended.
