A LETTER FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR THE MIND SEES AN OBJECT THE MIND DESIRES THE OBJECT THE OBJECT IS OUT OF REACH ANGER ARISES This truth about the fundamental nature of the mind has been articulated by spiritual teachers from the East for a millennia. In Tennessee Williams’ world, desire is an elemental force that sweeps away everything in its path. Blanche and Stanley both contain enormous rivers of desire. Neither has an outlet large enough to fully or safely give expression to that force. Both were born to dominate. And they find themselves thrust together in a two-room apartment, in the sweaty, noisy, over-ripe and un-airconditioned world that is New Orleans in the summer. Maybe things will work out smoothly, but ... By the time Williams wrote Streetcar — sitting in his apartment in the French Quarter — his beloved sister, Rose, had been in a mental institution for over a decade. A girl of delicate sensibilities, she had begun having psychotic episodes of an overtly sexual nature in her late teens. For her mother, the severely puritanical and passive-aggressive Edwina, the episodes felt like a personal assault. For her combustible and deeply frustrated father, C. C., they were a source of complete bafflement. For Tennessee, Rose’s unraveling proved a source of sheer terror. Here, the one person (besides his beloved grandfather) he had most felt a connection to through his youth, the one person he felt actually understood him, had come completely unhinged. Surely that fate lay in store for him.
This terror haunted Williams’ steps every moment of his life. Three years prior to sitting down to write Streetcar, after a particularly offensive and violent episode with Rose, Williams’ mother approved a frontal lobotomy for his sister. “A head operation,” she called it. Williams’ natural restlessness compounded. He drank too much, he couldn’t stay in one place for more than a few months, he slept with too many people. The only solace, the only outlet that allowed his demons to find some satisfaction, some form of quiet, was writing. Sitting at the typewriter he entered another world. No matter how late he’d been out the night before, no matter how much he’d had to drink, the fingers hit the keys of the typewriter, and another world emerged. He often didn’t exit that world until six or eight hours later. We revisit a play like Streetcar because there is something fundamental about the truth it excavates. Something thrilling about the power it continues to exert. – Chris Coleman

PAPER MOONS AND PLASTIC THEATER: The Enduring Vitality of A Streetcar Named Desire By PCS Literary Manager Benjamin Fainstein When A Streetcar Named Desire premiered in 1947, Americans play, Williams expresses a craving for a theater that is more were working to reestablish normalcy amid the lingering “atmospheric” than realistic. With Streetcar, Williams hit his dread of nuclear warfare. Despite burgeoning postwar mark. In The Glass Menagerie, the shifts between realistic and prosperity, Depression-era economic anxiety persisted. The expressionistic modes are self-conscious and coolheaded, country was catching its breath and renewing its confidence punctuated by Tom’s direct addresses between scenes. The after decades of tumult and loss. Veterans, like the men temperature of Streetcar, in contrast, is scorching. Williams’ of Streetcar, were returning to civilian life, hungry for dialogue darts from soaring lyricism to gritty slang, and he opportunity. Traditional gender roles were slowly shifting fuses the planes of poetry and reality. In doing so, he grants as a result of the millions of jobs created for women during symbolic significance to each element of the storytelling, from the war. In the Deep South, the effete ruling class saw lesscolor and shadow to music, weather and architecture. The affluent citizens gunning to supplant them through hard play adheres to his goal of a “plastic” theater that does not work and sheer force of will. The poetic bravura and moral eschew its “responsibility of dealing with reality,” but through incertitude of Streetcar, driven consummate theatricality provides a by an engine of robust sexuality, “penetrating and vivid expression theatricalized the evolving of things as they are.” American landscape. Williams The poetic bravura and moral gave theatergoers an explosion In Streetcar, as in other plays, incertitude of Streetcar, driven of immediacy unmatched by Tennessee Williams scavenged by an engine of robust sexuality, the musical comedies at other his personal life for dramatic theatricalized the evolving Broadway houses. The pervasive substance. Two of his iconic sense of instability rippling through thematic obsessions are the American landscape. Williams the play hit close to home, and few repercussions of suppressed sexual gave theatergoers an explosion sparring partners have maintained desire and the challenges faced by of immediacy unmatched by the legendary status of Blanche people living with mental illness. the musical comedies at other DuBois and Stanley Kowalski. His relationship with his beloved Broadway houses. sister, Rose, was forever altered When Blanche first mentions her after she was institutionalized family’s genteel Mississippi plantation following a frontal lobotomy Belle Reve (French for “beautiful intended to treat her schizophrenia. dream”), her neighbor Eunice remarks Tennessee harbored a lifelong that “a place like that must be awful hard to keep up.” These grief over Rose’s fate while simultaneously struggling with words prove ominous, and Blanche’s world of romantic his own mental health, addictions, and the stigma against illusions begins to crumble. As she vies with Stanley for the homosexuality. Williams conjured Blanche DuBois, a fictional affection of her sister Stella, Blanche’s secrets are exposed vessel through whom he could explore the potentially and her identity dismantled. With the name Belle Reve, catastrophic consequences of these issues. He then plunged Tennessee Williams subtly forecasts this gathering storm: In Blanche into a New Orleans that is both authentic and mythic, French, the feminine adjective “belle” does not agree with complicating the clash of reality and reverie that rages within “rêve,” a masculine noun. This discrepancy suggests that the and around her. Williams’ rendering of the city he knew so plantation was likely christened Belle Rive (a feminine noun well provides a lush backdrop of sweltering heat, cultural meaning “shore”) before colloquial pronunciation eroded it fusion, incessant music, and a maddening lack of privacy. to “rêve.” Scholar Felicia Hardison Londré links this linguistic The noise and people on the streets of New Orleans sweat slippage to the whole of Blanche’s tragedy, writing that “what and swoon in step with the malevolent pas de deux inside the had been a solid shore is now but an evanescent dream of lost DuBois-Kowalski apartment. And nearly seventy years since its splendor.” composition, Streetcar remains ready for the dance. Before Streetcar confirmed him as one of America’s most artful playwrights, Tennessee Williams was best known for his elegiac coming-of-age drama The Glass Menagerie, an innovative “memory play” structured around flashbacks conjured by its narrator, Tom Wingfield.

A “False City” of Mist & Mold: Locating A Streetcar Named Desire by Helen C. Jaksch When Blanche arrives at Stella and Stanley’s doorstep, she tells Eunice: “They told me to take a streetcar named Desire, and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at — Elysian Fields!” Tennessee Williams openly admits taking poetic license with the geography of Streetcar; a literal adherence to these directions would not lead you anywhere in 1947 New Orleans. 632 Elysian Fields is a real address, not in the iconic French Quarter, but in the Faubourg Marigny just a few blocks away. Faubourg translates to “false city” and is the traditional French word for a suburb just outside the walls of the city proper. Divided by Esplanade Avenue and the Louisville & Nashville Railroad tracks, the French Quarter and Marigny were sister neighborhoods. And while the streetcar lines (including the one named Desire) stitched them together, the architecture, residents and atmospheres were very different. In the late 1940s, the French Quarter was bustling, bright, and being groomed for the growing tourist economy. It was filled with two-story brick and stone buildings and ornate wroughtiron stairs and balconies. This neighborhood was somewhat diverse, but it was still upper-class. The Marigny, on the other hand, was part of the “immigrant belt” that emerged in the early 1900s when vast acres of swampland were drained, drawing many white residents away from the city’s center. With African Americans, whites, and immigrants of Sicilian, Greek, Irish, Filipino, Mexican, Polish and Chinese descent living with and around each other, the area was a kaleidoscopic mixture of cultures and people. This lower- and working-class neighborhood was populated by traveling salesmen, tradesmen, dock workers and returning soldiers. The houses here were weathered and wooden with carved gables and front porches. If the French Quarter was the sophisticated sister, the Marigny was the scrappy one. It is this Marigny that is the neighborhood of Williams’ play. Unlike the French Quarter, it stands in stark contrast to the romantic columns and grandeur of the DuBois’ Belle Reve plantation. In these shotgun-style houses, named for the fact that you could shoot a bullet from the front door straight to the back, there is no privacy to nurture secret desires or nurse blossoming shame. You see everything, even things you do not want to see — especially things you do not want to see. Humidity causes the pristine paint on the exterior of the houses to peel constantly, exposing the layers beneath all the way down to the bare wood. Facades cannot be maintained. The grass grows through cracks in the sidewalks; what’s below the surface will not stay hidden. The playwright said that Streetcar is about the “ravishment of the tender, the sensitive, the delicate, by the savage and brutal forces of modern society.” By setting his play in the middle of the people and architecture of the Marigny neighborhood, Williams creates a catastrophic collision of the misty Old South and earthy post-war America where Blanche and everything she symbolizes are roughly swept away in the winds of change.

Celebrating our Northwest Stories Everybody has a story to tell ... and so does every place. IT’S TIME TO TELL OURS. Portland Center Stage is delighted to announce the launch of Northwest Stories. Beginning this fall, PCS will bring to light a diverse collection of plays investigating the essence of our region. From fresh looks at regional history to dynamic explorations of contemporary culture, this series will blend adventurous storytelling with local impact, all created with the immediacy and vibrancy only live performance can bring. PCS audiences have already embraced past productions that touched on the Northwest experience — in shows ranging from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to Snow Falling on Cedars and Crazy Enough — and that inspired us to invest in telling even more of these stories as part of our programming. The Northwest Stories series will add to our ongoing mix of beloved classics, dazzling musicals, and the very best of contemporary theater. We are especially proud that the majority of the series will be created specifically for PCS and our audiences. In the 2016–2017 season, two plays from Northwest Stories will be world premieres: Astoria, based on the best-selling book by Peter Stark and adapted by Chris Coleman; and Wild and Reckless, a new musical event by local folk-rockers, Blitzen Trapper. We have also commissioned four new works by some of the most passionate and inventive artists working today to lend their voices to this series: James Beaton, Mary Kathryn Nagle, Dan O’Brien and Lauren Yee. These artists are each crafting unique plays that examine our culture with heart, humor and consummate humanity. As a group, they’ll create a landscape of works that will enchant our senses and ignite dynamic dialogues about the events — and the places — that define who we are. PCS already has a long history of developing new work for the stage. In the past 17 years, more than 70 scripts have been developed during our annual festival of new work, JAW: A Playwrights Festival. PCS has also produced 20 fully-staged world premieres. 150 professional theater companies have gone on to produce plays developed at PCS. Through an exciting partnership with The Wallace Foundation, we now have the resources to build on our history of adding to the theatrical canon, while also celebrating our connection to the Northwest. The root of Northwest Stories is a spirit of communitybuilding. Why do we form communities? How do different ones interlock and coexist? And what role does a specific corner of the world play in the shaping of a life? Given those questions, and the theater’s role as a nexus of community engagement, we are thrilled to share this work with you in the seasons to come.
We look forward to having you along for the journey!
SPONSOR STATEMENTS ARGYLE WINERY
Argyle Winery is proud of its long relationship with Portland Center Stage, an organization that has “always depended on the kindness of strangers” to provide programming that enriches our community through the arts. We’re looking forward to this production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
DON AND MARY BLAIR
It’s been a glorious 2015–16 season at Portland Center Stage, bookended by two giants of the American theater canon — Wilder’s Our Town in September and now Williams’ Streetcar to play us out. We congratulate all the hard-working artists and staff members at PCS for a season ‘Well Done’ and feel privileged to play a small part in helping PCS bring stories to life. Bravo!
CURTIS THOMPSON, MD AND ASSOCIATES
We are thrilled to be a corporate sponsor of this excellent and timeless play, and we cannot wait to see Portland Center Stage’s interpretation!
DEDRE J. MARRIOTT
Tennessee Williams has created a medley of indelible cast members in Streetcar who replicate his own family and friends. Director Chris Coleman once again combines seasoned national stage and screen actors with fine local talent to play these richly depicted characters. Please sit back and enjoy with me Williams’ master-crafted 1947 timeless theater piece, A Streetcar Named Desire.
Everyone understands exercise is good for you. But at Moda we believe being healthy involves stretching more than your muscles. An evening with Tennessee Williams is a Zumba class for your mind.
DRS. ANN SMITH SEHDEV AND PAUL SEHDEV
The cherry on top of a great season and decade at the Gerding Theater! Join us in our support of PCS as we welcome the next stellar season at the Armory!
STEVEN AND DEBORAH WYNNE
Live theater, drama you can see and hear and feel, is so exciting. For us, no other art form comes close. We’re honored to help bring to the PCS stage one of the great American plays.
