Last week, Year 12 and 13 English A level students visited the Crescent Theatre in Birmingham to see a performance of Tennessee Williams' Streetcar Named Desire.

The play is a set text on both A level courses and the students all felt that it was a valuable experience to see the words lifted from the page and performed.

The play deals with difficult themes and the students were able to pick apart the layers within the text through the skilful performances of the core trio of actors in this particular version.

They came out of the performance bubbling with ideas about how the director and actors had interpreted characters, themes and relationships.
