Cat On A Hot Tin Roof | London

The truth hurts.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell.  Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

Tennessee Williams, who wrote Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, is one of the Americas most famous playwrights, his acclaimed story has been revived numerous times on Broadway and in London's West End. It first opened on Broadway at the Morosco Theater in 1955, starring Barbara Bel Geddes, Ben Gazzara and Burl Ives and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play premiered in London the same year at the Comedy Theatre (now Harold Pinter) and was revived in 2001 at The Lyric Theatre starring Brendan Fraser and Frances O’Connor.
