WASHINGTON — Brian F. O’Bryne, Adam Rothenberg, and Amy Ryan will play key roles in the Kennedy Center’s upcoming production of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” part of a spring festival of plays by Tennessee Williams.

The trio join Patricia Clarkson, tapped previously to play Blanche DuBois, in a production to be staged by Garry Hynes.

O’Bryne, who will play Mitch, has previously worked with Hynes in plays including “The Lonesome West,” “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” and “A Skull in Connemara.” Credits for Rothenberg (who’ll play Stanley) include “Antigone,” “Dracula,” “The Sure Thing,” “The Lobster Boy,” “Seascape With Sharks and Dancer” and “Specter.” Ryan (Stella) is fresh from HBO series “The Wire.” She was last seen at the Kennedy Center in 1991 during the national tour of “The Heidi Chronicles.”

The festival will include productions of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” featuring Dana Ivey as Big Mama, and “The Glass Menagerie,” with Sally Field playing Amanda Wingfield.

Additional casting for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” will be announced soon. Mark Lamos will direct the production, replacing Gerald Gutierrez, who died unexpectedly Dec. 30.
