Described as “smart, sassy and delightful,” the first licensed production of “Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf: A Parody” is opening at The Laboratory Theater of Florida in Fort Myers.
A mysterious invitation finds Blanche Dubois on a train to New Orleans. She shares the train with hard-drinking couple George and Martha who are intent on depleting the entire bar car while delivering scathing advice on life and marriage before it 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.
The play is a clever and hilarious mash-up of Death of a Salesman, A Streetcar Named Desire, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Our Town, The Breakfast Club, and more!
