Cat On a Hot Tin Roof
by Tennessee Williams

April 2019

Set in the plantation home in the Mississippi Delta of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton tycoon, the play examins the relationships with his family, especially between his son, Brick, and daughter in law, Maggie.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof features themes such as social mores, greed, superficiality, mendacity, decay, sexual desire, repression and death.

The original production starred Barbara Bel Geddes, Burl Ives and Ben Gazzara. The play was adapted as a motion picture of the same name in 1958, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman as Maggie and Brick, with Burl Ives and Madeleine Sherwood recreating their stage roles. Williams made substantial excisions and alterations to the play for a revival in 1974.
