WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: Eastwood Park Theatre presents Pulitzer prize-winning play A Streetcar Named Desire
Eastwood Park Theatre is bringing an iconic masterpiece to the stage this autumn, with timeless American classic A Streetcar Named Desire on 2 October.
Audiences are invited to experience the excitement of live theatre with the vibrant production of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer-prize-winning play, which was immortalised in the Oscar-winning film starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh.
Scottish theatre company, Rapture, is showcasing the production at East Renfrewshire’s top arts destination in a must-see show for theatre fans, first time visitors and literature lovers alike.
Anthony McReavy, of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, said: “A Streetcar Named Desire is Tennessee Williams’ most famous work and features some of literature’s most iconic characters. It has gripped audiences around the world and Eastwood Park Theatre is delighted to bring the show to the local area. We are offering very competitively priced tickets, including a special price for students, to allow them to soak up a true taste of renowned live theatre.”
The plot sees a dazzling trip to the whirlwind world of New Orleans where fading southern belle Blanche DuBois seeks solace with her sister, Stella, after her world starts to crumble. But her downward spiral brings her face-to-face with Stella’s husband, the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. As temperatures soar and passions rise, Blanche and Stanley battle for Stella’s soul.
The show, under Michael Emans’ direction, features a cast of ten top class performers.
Fresh from her role at the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Gina Isaac leads the cast as she takes on the role of Blanche while Joseph Black plays Stanley. Critically acclaimed Scottish actress and theatre maker Julia Taudevin takes on the pivotal role of Stella. Multi-award winning Scottish actor Billy Mack will appear as Steve.
Tickets are priced at just £15 standard, concession £12 and student special price of £9 and are available now. To see the full programme of autumn/winter events at Eastwood Park Theatre and to book tickets visit: http://www.eastwoodparktheatre.co.uk/boxoffice
