A ROLE

MOSTDESIRED

Bridie Carter (

pictured below

) joins a long list of celebrated

actors who have played the coveted role of Blanche DuBois in

the Pulitzer Prize-winning Tennessee Williams play

A Streetcar

Named Desire

– a role that is considered one of the best ever

written for a woman. However, she won’t be looking back

to performances of Vivienne Leigh, Jessica Lange or Cate

Blanchett in preparation for her lead role in the La Boite

Theatre production. Instead Carter has been reading more

about the playwright, his biography and the times he lived

in to learn more about her character and others in the play.

Although it was written in the 1940s it has strong themes that

are still poignant today, from alcoholism and addiction to

domestic violence and mental illness.

Carter is looking forward to being back on stage after five

years and it fits nicely between filming her latest television

role on Seven Network drama

800Words

in New Zealand.

She hopes the play will find a new relevance with a younger

generation who may not be so familiar with Williams’ work.

“He was such a tortured man, it sort of brings him alive again

and I want to honour that. You’re voicing his words, his life,

his pain, his sorrow and taking that back out into the world

again,” she says.

A Streetcar Named Desire

, Roundhouse Theatre, La Boite,

Kelvin Grove from 15 Ocober to 12 November. Tickets from

$59 plus fees. See
