On a steamy summer’s night on a Mississippi plantation, Big Daddy’s family celebrate his sixty-fifth birthday. It’s a tense occasion. Big Daddy’s hard and unforgiving love has scarred his two sons, especially his favourite, Brick. Holding tight to something he cannot forget yet dare not mention, Brick wallows in booze and recrimination, thwarting the desires of his wife Maggie. But will the revelation that Big Daddy is dying set Brick and Maggie free?

Possessing a fractious atmosphere that mixes simmering sexuality with testy social comedy, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof swelters like a Delta fever, oozing the lyrical splendour for which Tennessee Williams is famous.

This production may feature herbal (non-tobacco) cigarettes and cigars and stage atmospherics.
