A Negro and white company of A Streetcar Named Desire, headed by Hilda Simms in the role of Blanche DuBois, has been tentatively scheduled at the Carnegie Hall Playhouse about the middle of September under the banner of Pied Piper Productions.

Terry Carter and Harvey Garrick, head of Pied Piper, also announce that Eli Rill, a protégé of Ella Kazan at the Actors' Studio, will direct the Tennessee Williams play, which was first produced here in 1947.

Miss Simms created the role of Anna in Anna Lucasta for the American Negro Theater here and in London.
