Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

12 April - 14 April
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Rory O’Sullivan

It's 1955 and it's hot in the Mississippi Delta, where 'Big Daddy' Pollitt, the richest plantation owner around, is celebrating his sixty fifth birthday.

His family are gathered around him including his sons Gooper, with his wife and five small children, and Brick, an ageing football star who has turned to drink, with his feisty wife Maggie, the 'Cat' of the title. As the evening unfolds family tensions first emerge, then rise to boiling point. Greed, jealousy, frustration, loneliness and the fear of impending death all combine in a ferocious cocktail of dysfunctional family relationships.

This Pulitzer Prize winning play was Williams' personal favourite, and his most passionate and articulate exploration of human frailty.
