But this Nevada City production restores the original language - which makes the iconic character of Blanche DuBois even more compelling. Versatile actress Trish Adair plays the fading southern belle. Listen to her fume as she insists it isn't her fault that the old family estate has been "lost."
Blanche: "Yes, accuse me, sit there, thinkin' I let the place go… I never let the place go. Where were you? In bed with your Polack!"
Blanche also clashes with working-class brother-in-law Stanley, who doesn't like the way Blanche dresses up and preens.
Blanche: "Stanley, I was fishing for a compliment."
Stanley: "I don't go in for that stuff."
Blanche: "What stuff?"
Stanley: "Compliments to women about their looks. I never met a woman who didn't know if she was good looking without being told, and some of them give themselves credit for more than they've got. I once went out with a doll who said to me 'I am the glamorous type, I am the glamorous type.' I said 'so what.'"
