Show information

“These are love-letters, yellowing with antiquity... poems a dead boy wrote. I hurt him the way that you would like to hurt me, but you can't! I'm not young and vulnerable anymore.”

Gillian Anderson stars as Blanche DuBois whose downward spiral collides with the visceral, animal Stanley, creating theatre’s most famous explosion of sexual tension.

Benedict Andrews’ Three Sisters won the 2012 Critics’ Circle Best Director Award. Now he directs Tennessee Williams’ finest play.
