The free parking in the theater lot is very limited. Arrive early if you do not want to pay for street parking which is abundant.

I have seen several plays at Raven Theatre and this was by far the best. The acting was superb as was the set and costumes. It brought to life the characters of Maggie the Cat and Big Daddy. Completely believable. Great performance.

Description

Silence about a thing just magnifies it.

It’s Big Daddy’s birthday and his family has arrived to celebrate in his Mississippi mansion. Tennessee Williams’ white-hot drama brings out the true colors of the wealthy Pollitt family. Lies, deception, false loyalty, and greed play characters as big as Big Daddy himself. Mendacity!
