Scottish Ballet takes to the road around Scotland with a stylish production of A Streetcar Named Desire based on Tennessee Williams’ famous script, which has become one of theatre’s most-performed plays, inspiring multiple adaptations in other forms. In steamy 1940s New Orleans, fading southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be and sets out to destroy her.

Scottish Ballet breathes new life into the classic tale, with graceful waltzes at the DuBois family home, electrifying jives in a Louisiana nightclub and intense duets in the caged heat of Stella and Stanley’s apartment.
