He was once at the highest of an exciting career chance as a ball-player that nose-dived into a life in an end-dead job. He was the child of an unsuccessful rural worker, Troy gives an extension to the Maxson case history inside the south and to the outcomes slavery had and keeps on having on generations of black lives. Through melody and narrating, Troy's character is the family coarseness, a traditional part of African culture as a paternal oral historian whose stories give a comprehension of the setting of their beloved ones' lives.

By the end of the film, he is a sinister degenerate: he beats his better half and rapes his in-law. Terrifyingly, he displays no remorse, while Blanche was taken to a psychiatric asylum and Stanley appeared to be the hero in the film. At the beginning of the play I saw an egalitarian hero.

He seems to enjoy getting into fights and liked to have passionate sex with his wife Stella often. His ancestors came from Poland, but he does not like to be called a “Polack” since it is a derogative name. In one of the scenes, Blanches called him a “Polack” and he was offended by it. In return, he made fun of her old-fashion clothing and corrected her by screaming on top of his lungs that was born in the States and just to call him Polish. He sees himself as a social radical, as he tells Stella in the film. Stanley’s intense hate of Blanche is actuated partially by the blue-blooded
