*Streetcar Named Desire

At last I managed to find a text of "The Streetcar Named Desire" (Hurray!)
BUT... The trouble is that this version, I think, is a result of bad scanning, with lots of mistakes and - probably, the most important detail - it's not an original text, but a script of a play, staged in NY by Elia Kazan (director who later shot the famous movie of the same name), if I not mistaken. But I think it's similar to the original.

It's in text (MsWord)-format so if you want it, send me an e-mail or comment on this post.

I marvel at your persistence and your Internet search skills. It's amazing that you've managed to turn the Internet upside down and to find the text (yet not exactly the original).
Wouldn't it be easier to go to the library :)? I would actually recommend you to read the original play with T.W. staging remarks...

Anna Vladimirovna!
Since last Friday I think the same way) I've got my play (xerox from the book) and read it, with original remarks and all (although they are in this script-version too). Paper one is more suitable for me, so I'm in the process of reading it at last.
