‘Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf’ play dates, times and ticket info


Play: Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf: a Parody

Playwright: Tim Sniffen based on a story created by Tim Ryder, Tim Sniffen, and The Second City.

Synopsis:  A mysterious invitation finds Blanche Dubois on a train to New Orleans. She shares the train with hard-drinking couple George and Martha who seem intent on depleting the entire bar car while delivering scathing advice on life and marriage before the train arrives at its destination. Upon arriving in New Orleans, Blanche runs into the smoldering Stanley Kowalski and the hapless Willie Loman. When you add in a folksy narrator and a mashup of movie and theater jokes, you get deliciously-satirical farce with some of the most recognizable characters of the twentieth century, all sharing the same stage.
