I apologise for the Streetcar spam today but honestly, it takes very little to remind me how much I love that play.

It was the play that brought me here. The missed opportunity in London that Brooklyn put right. It’s the play I wrote a 10k essay on production differences London>St Ann’s for no reason besides love, It’s the play I have had the same copy of since I was 15. The play that has a decade of reading notes that explain how I’ve grown. The same copy Gillian signed. It’s the dream conversation I got to have in reality. It brought me here and I will probably never quite be able to adequately express my love for it, 

I’m Streetcar’s bitch. 

And that was the production of a lifetime,
