A Streetcar Named Desire  Passage 1 A Streetcar Named Desire is a classic of the American theatre. Tennessee Williams'
landmark work was tour de force in its original stage production in 1 947 and continues to resonate with audiences and readers
a
today despiteor perhaps because ofits simplistic though layered story. A faded Southern belle, Blanche DuBois, arrives at
her sister's seedy New Orleans apartment where she is tortured by her brutish brotherinlaw, Stanley Kowalski. Blanche puts on
airs of class and happiness throughout the play, though internally she is miserable and haunted by her tragic and scandalous
past. Stanley forces Blanche to face her dolorous reality with his vitrioi and, finally, his act of sexual aggression, and in doing so,
he causes her to lose her tenuous grip on sanity. Most have argued (correctly) that the play is about the ways the past haunts our
present or (again correctly) that it is about the ways class and sexuality impact our lives. However, few have seen the play for
what it is: an allegory for the theatre itself.
'l
Before Williams wrote Streetcar, the theatre had been dominated by melodrama. A brief interlude in the 930s brought political
theatre to centre stage (pardon the pun), but by the 1940s, its principal playwright, Clifford Odets, had left NewYork for
Hollywood, and the sensationalized and maudlin form of melodrama once again flourished. The theatre was in iimbo, and
Williams had a desire to bring something new to the world. lt would bring the realism of the politicaltheatre of the t930s but
without the political (read: socialist) underpinnings. To that end, he created lifelike characters who spoke in realistic dialect.
But to make his point that melodrama was flawed, he added an equally unrealistic character. Blanche, unlike the other
characters, speaks theatrically, acts larger than life on stage, and uses floral language and heightened mannerisms. Blanche is a
character not to be trusted. She lies about everything, and the only thing that finally exposes her lies is reality itseif: Stanley. He
finally forces her off the stage and into the insane asylum by forcing himseif on her sexually. And with ihai, realism forcibiy
removed melodrama from the stage.
