20.     EVENT: A Streetcar Named Desire:
A Streetcar Named Desire is a play written by legendary playwright, Tennessee Williams. For ten days, (September 18-27), the School of Theatre and Dance at the University of Florida will present this play. September 18 & 22 -- 26 at 7:30pm. September 20 & 27 at 2:00pm.

A Streetcar Named Desire reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject-so far as possible-the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores.
The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister Stella, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely sensual young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

The production will take place in Constans Theatre. The University Box Office is located in the lobby of the Constans Theatre and is open Monday through Friday from 12:00-5:00pm and 45 minutes prior to each performance. Tickets for Students, Faculty, Staff and Senior Citizens are $13. Tickets for the General Public are $17.

This week's show is special because we are hosting local bluegrass band Greenland is Melting's CD release show. Their Gainesville friends indie pop group Quadrophones and folk country band The Damn Wrights will be opening up to celebrate the occasion.
