Description

 Clawing hopes for the future and haunting sins of the past spar with one another at a Pollitt Family birthday party. Swarming around Brick, the beloved alcoholic son, are his conniving siblings and estranged wife, Maggie, all hoping to get a piece of Big Daddy’s fortune. Love, fortitude, and passion can set things right by evening’s end, but only if everyone agrees to believe their own lies.

Tennessee Williams won the Pulitzer Prize for his plays A Streetcar Named Desire_ (1948) and for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof_ (1955). He also earned two Drama Critics’ Circle Awards for The Glass Menagerie_ (1945) and _The Night of the Iguana (1961). His 1952 play The Rose Tattoo won the Tony for Best Play. David Mamet referred to his writing as “the greatest dramatic poetry in the American language.”
