Categorical thought shifts, blurs, and gives way as a group of students are haunted and haunt Tennessee William’s Streetcar Named Desire while trapped in a living room in the Midwest in the 90s. Tori Amos floats in and out, characters collapse, and psyches merge in this disembodied yet empowered adaptation of a play about losing one’s mind under the crush of a world without poetry.
