Konečná stanica túžba

16/03/2011 18:11

The Slovak National Theatre is staging one of the best pieces in the history of American drama, a 1947 play Streetcar Named Desire written by Tennessee Williams, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1948. The Slovak production is led by the acclaimed Czech stage director and artistic director of the drama ensemble of the Czech National Theatre in Prague, Michal Dočekal. The play opened in the new building of the National Theater on 12 February under the name Konečná stanica túžba, casting  Tomáš Maštalír (Stanley), Táňa Pauhofová (Stella) and Diana Mórová (Blanche).

How long can one live a life of illusions?

Where is the separating line between fantasy and reality?

Can words kill?

The play portrays a culture clash between two iconic characters, Blanche DuBois, a fading relic of the Old South, and Stanley Kowalski, a rising member of the industrial, urban working class. Impoverished and pretentious, but still attractive Southern belle, Blanche DuBois, arrives at the tiny apartment of her sister Stella and her husband Stanley in the French Quarter of New Orleans in pursuit of life in a world where illusions and fantasies blend seamlessly with reality. A brilliant study of the psyche of a woman who, under a thin mask of grandeur and happiness, disguises her bitter past and tragic strokes of fate.
