EP 402 - A Streetcar Named Marge


Marge decides to try out for the Springfield Community Center play musical, Oh Streetcar! (directed by Lewellyn Sinclair), based on the play A Streetcar Named Desire. She gets the part of the leading lady, Blanche DuBois. Homer is very disappointed and doesn't like Marge going out to do the play. As a result, Marge vents her anger in emotional scenes of the play.

Homer goes to see the play and is moved by the performances. He realizes that he should have been much more supportive of Marge.

Meanwhile, Maggie has been placed in Ayn Rand School for Tots. The teacher is very strict. She takes away all pacifiers. This causes Maggie to lead a rebellion. She successfully gives all the babies their pacifiers back.
