Tennessee William's greatest play supports a great cause
Ever tried to fake it so others can't see the real you?
In Tennessee William's "A Streetcar Named Desire", arguably one of his most prolific and best plays, we see the dire results when we blur the lines of reality and fantasy. He won the Pulitzer Prize for it in 1948 and it remains timeless in its ability to challenge and intrigue audiences as they watch humanity implode on stage before them. Not to mention that it's a great yarn.

Supporting Lifeline Hunter

The Dance and Performing Arts Theatre (DAPA) in Hamilton is running a current season of "A Streetcar Named Desire" and on Friday, 25th October, DAPA is combining with Lifeline to raise money for the charity through a special performance of the play. The DAPA Theatre is in Beaumont Street, right next to the Exchange Hotel.

'A Streetcar Named Desire' revolves around Blanche duBois an old time 'Southern Belle' who has squandered her inheritance and fallen on hard times. She is forced to impose herself on the limited hospitality of her sister Stella and her working class husband Stanley. The story provides the inspiration for Woody Allen's latest film "Blue Jasmine" which has been met with wide acclaim.

Tickets can be purchased through Lifeline for $30. Please phone Annette Cain on (02) 4940 2000 or email her at There will also be prizes being raffled on the night so good luck!
