Britney Spears has reportedly been considered to play the role of Blanche DuBois in a West End play, titled "A Street Car Named Desire".

After making a successful appearance in the TV sitcom "How I Met Your Mother", Britney Spears is set to expand her acting career. Reports said that the singer has been considered to act on the West End theater stage for a role in an award winning play written by Tennessee Williams, "A Street Car Named Desire".

Britney is considered to be given the role of Blanche DuBois, a pretentious, fading relic of the Old South. "Britney's been on the list for this for some time but until recently was considered too risky. Her appearance on 'How I Met Your Mother' changed all that. She had poise, timing and a real flair. She may be a bit too young for the role but she is perfect to embody the tragic spirit of Blanche, who uses alcohol to mask her pain," so said a source to the Daily Star.

"A Street Car Named Desire" was a huge hit during its release in 1947 and has helped the author, Tennessee, to win a Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 1948. Its movie version, which was made in 1951, achieved the same success and won 4 out of 12 Oscar nominations.

Should Britney accepts the offer she will follow the footsteps of actress Vivien Leigh, who received an Oscar for her adaptation of Blanche in the 1951 movie version of the play.

Meanwhile, Britney's guest starring role on "How I Met Your Mother" was considered a success as it helps the TV show received its highest ratings since it was first premiered in September 2005 with a reported 10.6 million viewers.
