One of the most exciting works of the 20th century, and the playwright’s personal favourite, the play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955.
Set in the wealthy plantation home of Big Daddy and his family, the play focuses on the marriage of Brick, the ‘favoured’ son, and Brick’s beautiful, but desperately
frustrated wife, Maggie, the ‘Cat’ of the title. Brick has distanced himself from the world with a screen of liquor, and Maggie strives to break through to find him again.
This mesmerising play shows the destructive power of lies, and how families will avoid telling the truth in order to maintain a semblance of harmony and position.
This amateur production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals company, and by special arrangement with The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, USA.
