Description

Heinemann Plays is a well established series offering the best of contemporary drama and a wide range of established classics, in value-for-money hardback versions. The series has been specially developed to support classroom teaching and performance. Within the series there are plays for the full 11-17 age range. The series also contains the best of contemporary writing, and new editions of classic plays.
Heinemann Plays are sewn and bound in sturdy hardback covers, guaranteeing longer life. Heinemann Plays are ideal for class reading and performance, many with large casts and an equal mix of parts for boys and girls.

Set against the steamy backdrop of the New Orleans old quarter in summer, A Streetcar Named Desire depicts the conflict between a fading Southern Belle from an old colonial family and the brash, tough, lower-class, city society her sister has married into.

Familiar Tennessee Williams themes are touched on: survival, death, sexual passion, madness and the haunting legacy of the past.

This edition contains notes and activities to enhance understanding and enjoyment of the play.
