“Blanche’s inability to be honest is her downfall.”
Kelly Gough provides a character analysis of Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire and discusses her process for bringing the role to life in Chelsea Walker’s modern adaptation performed at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton in 2018.
Gough considers how updating the play for a contemporary audience forces us to question the issues in today’s society surrounding toxic masculinity, domestic abuse and gender equality. She also offers an insight into the rehearsal process, emphasising the need for dialogue and an understanding of physicality when approaching the scenes between Blanche and Stanley.
