The play tells the story of Blanche DuBois, a fading southern belle who is forced to come to New Orleans to stay with her younger sister Stella. Blanche has lost the family home Belle Reve, along with her teaching position and her grasp on the genteel life she’s led so far. In New Orleans, Blanche is confronted by the different circumstances of Stella’s life, including Stella’s husband Stanley Kowalski and his animalistic, brutish nature. As Blanche navigates this new world, her illusions about the life she’s left behind versus reality result in tragedy for the sisters.

Sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons – the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom and King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183.
