Britney Spears offered role in West End play – Tabloid Hell

The troubled singer could be treading the boards in London

Britney Spears has been offered a role in a forthcoming London West End production of the Tennessee Williams play ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’.

According to the Daily Star, the singer has been offered the role of Blanche DuBois because her own troubled lifestyle echoes that of the character.

The newspaper quotes an anonymous source as saying: “She has poise, timing and a real flair. We’d wanted her for Blanche because even though she’s technically too young to play her, who else could embody this fallen southern belle so well?

“She’s living out the story, so to harness that on stage would be amazing for an audience to see – and cathartic for Britney too.”
