Odd Stagings #2a: A FAGGOT STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE by Joel Sattler

 

 

If you find the above offensive:

it was meant to be.

 

 

Tennessee Williams, the author of the iconic drama “A Streetcar Named Desire” was gay at a time when it was dangerous to be gay. You could lose your reputation, your home, your family, your job, and even your LIFE for being homosexual.

And Williams was a proud man.

“Streetcar” was, and is, meant to be rude! In-your-face RUDE!

And he took it as far as he could go, pushing the tolerances of the audience to the limit and beyond.

What a guy!

 

 

So, in these two adaptions, I am pushing the push.

I don’t think Mr. Williams would mind. Odd adaptations are an old tradition in the theatre.

Besides, he had guts!

 

So, to continue:

 

As in “A Bull Dyke Streetcar Named Desire”, the action in “Faggot” takes place in WWII Frisco.

But the cast is all male.

[with the possible exception of “Mitch”]

Stella’s real name is “Forrestel”

Blanche’s real name is “Lance”

 

 

 

I think the rest is self-explanatory……
