25 - Orpheus Descending by Tennessee Williams

Play Ground

Despite the characters explicitly talking about the cold all the time, prepare to hear about some very  hot and sweaty goings on in this William's classic. When a young hot guy walks into a Southern town that's afraid of hot people, there's prejudice and hatred to deal with on top of all the wild animal metaphors that Tennessee loves so much.We discuss why the town is so afraid of hot people, what it might be like to be a bird with no legs, and themes of isolation in one's own body.Have some feedback?

They’re also talking sharp-elbowed middle-class mums and how youngsters are failed by the system.And Hannah’s Rated or Dated pick of 1951’s A Streetcar Named Desire might out Mick as some sort of philistine, but it doesn’t stop the pair of them getting hot under the collar about the genius of Tennessee Williams. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/standardissuespodcast.

Realism as Cruelty in “A Streetcar Named Desire” by Tennessee Williams

SUBTEXT Literature and Film Podcast

In the transition from stage to screen, A Streetcar Named Desire retained its long-running Broadway cast with a single exception: the role of Blanche Dubois, which passed from Jessica Tandy to Vivien Leigh. Like Blanche, Leigh was the odd woman out. A symbol of the glories of the studio system, married to the symbol of English stage acting, her classical training ran contrary to that of her Method-trained co-stars. Thus to the clash of wills between Blanche and Stanley Kowalski was added a clash of acting styles— and the struggle between the death of Old Hollywood and the birth of Brando and the New. Which principle— Blanche’s fantasy or Stanley’s realism— makes for superior art? Can the conflict between magic and truth ever be resolved? And is all realism a form of cruelty? Wes & Erin analyze Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire.  The conversation continues on our after-show (post)script.
