Every man is a king. Stanley Kowalski is no exception.

Until one summer, when his sister-in-law Blanche comes to stay. Anxious, seductive and fiercely clever, Blanche is just about keeping it together. But her arrival threatens his entire way of life.

As the temperature soars and passions intensify, a burning desire threatens to tear their world apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece is a fiery portrayal of what it means to be an outsider, in a society where we’re all desperate to belong.
