The play dramatises the life of Blanche DuBois, a Southern belle who upon falling on hard times leaves her aristocratic background and seeks refuge with her sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley in a dilapidated New Orleans apartment building. In turning to her sister for solace as her fragile world crumbles, her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley.
