New York: New Directions, 1947 First edition, first printing. Publisher's lavender cloth, lettered in black; in lavender pictorial dust jacket designed by Alvin Lustig, with an illustration to the front panel of a male stick figure dancing with two female stick figures, lettered in black and white. Near fine, with light toning and some light wear to the extremities, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some minor toning to the spine, some creasing and a few small nicks to the edges of the panels, short closed tear to the top edge of the front panel, otherwise bright and fresh panels. Overall, a clean and attractive copy, without the usual toning that renders it white. A Streetcar Named Desire is the Pulitzer Prize winning play about the mental breakdown of the charming, yet troubled Southern belle Blanche DuBois, who runs away from her past by traveling to visit her sister Stella on a streetcar named "Desire." Despite its shockingly gritty language and somewhat controversial subject matter, A Streetcar Named Desire was a critical and commercial success. The play was first produced on Broadway on December 3, 1947, at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. It was directed by Elia Kazan and starred Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Jessica Tandy, and Karl Malden. In 1951, A Streetcar Named Desire was adapted into a film, also directed by Kazan and starring Brando, Hunter, and Malden along with Vivien Leigh.. Illus. by Lustig, Alvin. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
