In Ms. Heishman’s American Drama class students were asked to create an adaptation of Tennessee Williams' “A Streetcar Named Desire.” It was a project that allowed students to take the characters and events of the play and work them into another format. There were few restrictions, resulting in a wide variety of final products, all of which were creative and effectively exhibited their familiarity of the play and its themes.
Students judged their adaptations and the winner, A Teletubbies remake by Lily Hyon ’16, Taylor Chung ’16, and Anne Yang ’16, won tickets and a chaffeur (Ms. Heishman) for a night at the movies. Other adaptions included a fairy tale, news broadcast, and a Fluxx-style card game which gained the attention of Fluxx creator, Andy Looney, via Twitter. He hopes to visit the class for a game sometime in the near future.
