Philip C. Kolin

Published by Cambridge University Press

One of the most important plays of the twentieth century, A Streetcar Named Desire revolutionised the modern stage

This book offers the first continuous history of the play in production from 1947 to 1998 with an emphasis on the collaborative achievement of Tennessee Williams, Elia Kazan, and Jo Mielziner in the Broadway premiere

From there chapters survey major national premieres by the world's leading directors including those by Seki Sano (Mexico), Luchino Visconti (Italy), Ingmar Bergman (Sweden), Jean Cocteau (France ) and Laurence Olivier (England)

Philip Kolin also evaluates key English-language revivals and assesses how the script evolved and adapted to cultural changes

Interpretations by Black and gay theatre companies also receive analyses and transformations into other media, such as ballet, film, television, and opera and form an important part of the overall study
