Riot Act, Inc. will be holding auditions for its production of A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams.  The six performances will run March 4-8, 2020 on The Main Stage at Center for the Arts.  The show will be helmed by veteran director Macey Mott with Samantha Kaufman choreographing intimacy and fights.

Play description:

The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche DuBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject – so far as possible – the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores.  The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely “normal” young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness. ~ Dramatist Play Service
