Book A Streetcar Named Desire tickets to see this American classic performed by a formidably talented cast

Academy Award nominee Paul Mescal is a force to be reckoned with as he stars in the West End transfer of A Streetcar Named Desire. The Almeida Theatre’s hugely acclaimed revival of Tennessee Williams’ classic play is a must-see at the Phoenix Theatre.

Married couple Stanley and Stella are suddenly visited by Stella’s estranged sister Blanche. Why she’s turned up is a mystery, but Stanley is determined to solve it. As he hunts down the truth, Blanche’s secrets are exposed and a violent confrontation changes all of their lives forever. 

Williams’ most famous play has been revived countless times since premiering in 1947. Its explosive story of domestic drama, mental health, sexual politics and violence is startlingly realised by director Rebecca Frecknall in this new production, which sold out almost immediately at the Almeida Theatre in 2022. 

The Almeida cast of A Streetcar Named Desire reprise their roles for the West End. Paul Mescal is Stanley. Mescal is in top demand after the runaway success of Normal People and his Oscar-nominated performance in Aftersun

Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke) is troubled and enigmatic Blanche, and Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts; Lyric Hammersmith A Doll’s House) is Stella. Dwane Walcott (One Night in Miami) also appears, as Mitch. 

Rebecca Frecknall is an Olivier Award winning theatre director. Her immersive production of Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, which opened with Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley, continues to wow audiences at the Playhouse Theatre. Other creatives include set designer Madeleine Girling, costume designer Merle Hensel, lighting designer Lee Curran, sound designer Peter Rice, and composer Angus MacRae.

A Streetcar Named Desire at the Phoenix Theatre is set to be one of the most sought-after tickets this year. Book early to see this stunning revival and incredible cast.
