Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Author(s): Tennessee Williams
Company: Royal Exchange Theatre
Age recommendation: 12+

“But the one thing I don’t have is the charm of the defeated, my hat is still in the ring, and I am determined to win!”

Secrets and lies are as oppressive as the Mississippi heat, suffocating Maggie and everything she’s fought for.

It’s Big Daddy’s birthday and the family are home for one helluva celebration. Big Daddy is dying, except he doesn’t know it. But his family does, and so begins an ugly battle for succession.

Dripping in ambitious flattery, Gooper and his wife Mae are poised to win—but Maggie is ready to pounce. Maggie spits, viper-tongued, fighting like a cat on a hot tin roof while Brick sinks to the bottom of a bottle—waiting haplessly for the 'click’.
