What Is the Story of A Streetcar Named Desire?
Blanche DuBois, a former schoolteacher and fading Southern belle, arrives in the French Quarter of New Orleans to stay with her pregnant sister Stella and Stella’s husband Stanley. Blanche is disdainful of the couple’s cramped quarters, though it is quickly revealed that the DuBois family home, Belle Reve, has been lost and she has nowhere else to go. Blanche's genteel sensibility and judgmental nature brings out the worst in the hot- tempered, working class Stanley. Blanche, ever hopeful, sparks a romance with Stanley's friend Mitch, until Stanley goes digging through her seamy past to destroy her hopes of a fresh start in New Orleans. When Stella goes into labor and leaves for the hospital, Stanley and Blanche are left alone in the apartment, and things come to a violent head.
