Based on A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
Odéon-Théâtre de L’Europe
Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide
STARRING: Isabelle Huppert
“Staged with gusto by Warlikowski, A Streetcar... takes Isabelle Huppert on a head-spinning journey to hell and beyond.”
There was theatre before Krzysztof Warlikowski – and then there is theatre after Krzysztof Warlikowski.
Europe’s great avant garde director, Warlikowski, and one of Canada’s finest theatre-makers, Wajdi Mouawad, put a controversial 21st century spin on Tennessee Williams' much-loved American masterpiece. The result: a production that divided Paris. At the centre of the maelstrom is France’s most enduring and respected film actress, Isabelle Huppert, who takes to the stage for the famous Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe in a brave and haunting performance.
This is Streetcar like you’ve never seen before and unlikely to see again.
Find out what all the fuss is about.
Performed in French with English surtitles
