Synopsis: ‘Cat On a Hot Tin Roof’

Tennessee Williams classic story of sexual tension, deceit and death on a sultry Mississippi night. “Big Daddy” Pollitt runs a plantation and his family in this classic Tennessee Williams study of southern life. Brick and his wife, Maggie ‘the Cat’, battle their demons and each other as the rest of the family gathers to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday but ultimately to face the mortality of their patriarch. His family has lied to Big Daddy and Big Mama to spare the aging couple from pain on the patriarch’s birthday but, throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear that the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit for itself.
