Cat on a Hot
Tin Roof

Fri 3 - Sat 18 Sep 2021

Synopsis

Share:

On a sweltering Mississippi night, the lies are as stifling as the heat.

Maggie has fought up from poverty, only to find herself in a passionless, burning marriage. Her husband Brick Pollitt, a former pro footballer, drinks to drown out the hurt he has bottled up inside.

When the entire Pollitt family meet for Big Daddy’s 65th birthday, the claws are out. As shattering truths threaten to spiral out of control, the family set out to protect themselves, and each other, from falling apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’ lyrical Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is a blazing portrayal of what it takes to survive in a society where we’re all desperate to feel free.

Directed by Anthony Almeida, winner of the 2019 RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof follows the acclaimed Made at Curve production of Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire.

Please note this show contains some adult themes and flashing lights.
