A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Welcome to A Streetcar Named Desire, the first production of Yale Repertory Theatre’s 2013-14 season—and also Yale Rep’s first-ever production of one of the 20th century’s most important plays. Streetcar is just one of countless works that enjoyed world premieres here in New Haven before reaching larger audiences in New York and around the world. First produced in 1947— just a few blocks away at New Haven’s Shubert Theater— Tennessee Williams’s Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece has captured the hearts and imaginations of theatre artists and audiences for nearly seven decades. A brave inventor of 20th-century American theatre, Williams challenged the accepted social mores of his time and gave full-blooded dramatic life to dark, ambiguous situations and themes that continue to resonate today. Streetcar contains some of the most vital and beautiful poetry ever written for the stage: not only in its incredibly rich dialogue but also in its published stage directions, which are themselves an invitation to use all the tools of the theatre to create a landscape that is both familiar and strange, imaginatively invented and achingly true. This Streetcar is a true passion project for Mark Rucker, who returns for his tenth production at Yale Rep with a play he’s wanted to direct his entire professional life. It’s a pleasure to share with you the remarkable work he and his artistic collaborators, including a magnificent company of actors led by René Augesen and Joe Manganiello, have created here in the University Theatre. Whether you are a new member of our audience or a long time subscriber, you may reach me easily by email: my address is james.bundy@yale.edu. I welcome your thoughts about the production and your experiences at Yale Rep. It’s always good to hear from you!

Sincerely,

James Bundy Artistic Director

A “False City” of Mist & Mold: Locating A Streetcar

Named Desire

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 wrought-iron 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 a 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. 13


It is this Marigny that is the neighborhood of Williams’s play. Unlike the French Quarter, it stands in stark contrast to the romantic columns and grandeur of the DuBois’s 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.

Blanche’s Chair in the Moon or The Plastic Theatre of

Tennessee Williams

16

In his 1945 production notes for The Glass Menagerie, written two years before Streetcar, Tennessee Williams writes that “the straight realistic play with its genuine Frigidaire and authentic icecubes, its characters who speak exactly as its audience speaks, corresponds to the academic landscape and has the same virtue of a photographic likeness.” Translation: in his opinion, straight realism tends to lack vitality and dynamic energy. Williams’s solution is a “new, plastic theatre” filled with “atmospheric touches… Expressionism and all other unconventional techniques” that serve only to get closer to the truth. And though Streetcar can seem to fall under the banner of a realistic play—complete with its own ice box and authentic ice-cubes—the play is part of the playwright’s Plastic Theatre revolution.


Williams constantly stitched together personal experiences and existing materials when crafting his plays. In Streetcar as in Menagerie, Williams borrows from his biography in the form of his mentally ill sister Rose, from the sights and sounds of his 1947 New Orleans home, and from his personal anxieties about being a gay man. Williams directly transfers language from scraps of his other plays like The Spinning Song and Portrait of a Madonna and puts it in Blanche’s mouth. He steals from the bold colors of Van Gogh’s painting The Night Café and the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. These elements create a collage of discrete parts that unite to get closer to the truth of decay, desire, and loss. Williams’s almost curatorial style of playwriting blurs the lines of a straightforward realistic play. It is a mixture of painting, dance, music, poetry, and memory with a play at its center.

Williams considered several titles for his play before he settled on A Streetcar Named Desire: The Poker Night, The Moth, The Primary Colors, and Blanche’s Chair in the Moon. These working titles evoke bold colors, images, and symbols. Surely a play called Blanche’s Chair in the Moon could not be contained in a set with three real walls and an actual ceiling. Streetcar is in many ways a memory play just like Glass Menagerie, but where Amanda dominates Tom’s memory, Blanche is the star of her own story. It is in this theatrical space of memory, playing on a constant loop in Blanche’s mind, where Williams departs from the established conventions of his artistic moment. In keeping with mid20th-century American realism, Streetcar calls for practical lamps onstage and characters who seem familiar to its audiences, but the play also calls for passing shadows, animal imagery, and

haunting music that only Blanche can hear, and a specific use of color in the costumes and lighting that symbolize emotion, character types, and even the concepts of life, death, and salvation. In Glass Menagerie, Tom (a stand-in for the playwright himself, even possessed of Williams’s given birth name) enters the stage and addresses the audience, saying, “Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.” Blending realism with his concept of a new, plastic theatre, Williams manipulates the theatrical tricks at his disposal in Streetcar and illuminates a truth about sexuality, society, and family that resonates decades after Blanche breathlessly exclaims, “sometimes—there’s God—so quickly!” —HCJ
