Description

The night air is thick as molasses. Maggie doesn’t notice the strap of her slip as it slides down one shoulder. The ice clinks softly in Brick’s glass as he pours himself yet another drink. She’s sick of the routine; he’s sick of her. And tonight they’ve both reached the boiling point. In Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, a southern family’s simmering secrets rise to the surface as the family gathers to bid a final happy birthday to their ailing Big Daddy.

On the 50th anniversary of the play’s premiere, Tennessee Williams’s powerful and poetic language is as relevant to our cultural identity as his characters are unforgettable. With Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Williams cuts through the layers of one family’s facade to let loose the beautiful, shuddering last gasps of a tenuously constructed American mirage.
