“Streetcar, for me, is about how a community can be complicit in a stream of violence towards women.”
Chelsea Walker provides an in-depth analysis of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire and reveals her intentions for staging the play at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton in 2018.
Walker emphasises the importance of getting under the skin of the characters, with a particular focus on finding a language for Blanche’s trauma to promote expressionism in the production. She also explores her directorial process, using improvisation to unlock a playfulness in the rehearsal room, and highlights the importance of bringing the play into the 21st century.
