Old Mill Theatre, South Perth (WA). Directeor: Danielle Ashton. June 24 - July 4.
The first production of A Streetcar Named Desire to play in Perth in some years was memorable for its strong production values, some outstanding performances and its excellent multi-level set.
On entering Old Mill’s auditorium, one could not help feeling in awe of Hwyel Williams and Danielle Ashton’s impressive set, which captured the poverty of Stanley and Stella’s flat, evoked the neighbourhood and the era, and made incredible use of space. The entrance of the ensemble, well dressed by Merri Ford, further transported us to post-war New Orleans.
