On a sweltering Mississippi night, the lies are as stifling as the heat.
Maggie has fought up from poverty, only to find herself in a passionless, burning marriage. Her husband Brick Pollitt, a former pro footballer, drinks to drown out the hurt he has bottled up inside. When the entire Pollitt family meet for Big Daddy’s 65th birthday, the claws are out.
As shattering truths threaten to spiral out of control, the family sets out to protect themselves, and each other, from falling apart.
This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ lyrical Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece is a blazing portrayal of what it takes to survive in a society where we’re all desperate to feel free.
Event image: On a dramatic background swirling with purple and red clouds, the words CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, in white, appear to be cracking from the heat. On top of the letters of the word ROOF, it reads ‘by Tennessee Williams’.
