you could link it to post colonialism via the setting. The location, Elysian fields, is incredibly multi ethnic. This melting pot is a snap shot of contempary america and this is shown by the continued mixing of race.

Also the contrast between Blanche and stanley, her 'southern aristocracy' v his 'new american', further illustrates the idea that streetcar can compare to the notion of post colonialism.
