“When you have a Blanche meeting a Stanley, there’s always going to be an eruption.”
Patrick Knowles provides a character analysis of Stanley in A Streetcar Named Desire and discusses his process for bringing the role to life in Chelsea Walker’s modern adaptation performed at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton in 2018.
Knowles reveals Stanley’s motivations in the play, observing how fear is often the driving force behind some of his behaviour, and considers how he has become a product of the ultra-masculine environment which surrounds him.
