It was considered exotic and erotic, a passional drama, probing the complex and complicated issues of man’s mixted emotions. It is not the story which comes first, as much as the relationship between the characters. „Any man is king”… until the minute Blanche arrives. And only until the day when the power relationhips are menaced and the world starts falling apart. Seduction and the desperate need to belong, illusions and magic, innocence along with force and anger, a mixed state of emotions, all are masterfully depicted by Tennessee Williams.
