Why See Cat on a Hot Tin Roof?

The Tennessee Wiliams classic gets a new production with an African-American cast.

Will manipulative patriarch Big Daddy leave his plantation to his weasly son Gooper or his handsome alcoholic son Brick? And why doesn't Brick have a son of his own? Hotblooded wife Maggie does her best to tempt Brick from his brooding and back into her bed.

Hyprocisy, greed and secret passions threaten to tear apart a wealthy, but dysfunctional Mississippi family in Tennessee Williams' stunning American masterpiece. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof searingly portrays the larger-than-life characters of Maggie "the Cat", her alcoholic husband, Brick, and the dominating family patriarch, Big Daddy.

Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
