really liked it

A Streetcar Named Desire was a very mysterious play. It literally had me wanting to know what was going to happen in the rest of the scenes. The two characters that had me excited the most were Stanley and Blanche. Blanche alone was a package. She came from her home town with all these lies and secrets, and thought that no one would've found out. Apparently she didn't know whose house she was going into or even better, the type of man her sister was married to. Stanley was very handsome and very sneaky. He was also a woman beater, well at least once Blanche came he turned into one. Blanche never brought out the good in Stanley.
As Blanche tried to push her stay and permanently live with her sister Stella, Stanley saw it and he wasn't having it. Stanley went out and found out all the dirt on Blanche. Why she was with them, where she use to work, what happened to the rest of her family, where she use to live, and if she was ever married. Stanley found everything out and every piece of information had bad news in it and made him hate her even more. Stanley would tell Stella the information he found out, but she refused to believe anything that came out of his mouth. Eventually Blanche got taken to a mental hospital after one of Stanley's close friends Mitch broke her heart because of her lies and her ager difference. Blanche was a mental case in so many ways.
