The stifling heat of the plantation. A relationship on the brink. A night of bourbon-soaked confrontations and a family dynasty in crisis. Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer prize-winning Cat On A Hot Tin Roof remains one of the stage’s most seductive evocations of the Deep South.

Brimming with emotional intensity, this powerful family drama sees Maggie the Cat and her husband Brick return to his home on the night of patriarch and cotton tycoon Big Daddy’s 65th birthday. Keeping from him the news that he is dying, the evening spirals into disaster as the family scramble to secure their part of his inheritance.

Life-altering secrets are revealed and tensions explode as Artistic Director James Dacre’s exciting new staging, with original music by MOJO and Q Award-winning band White Lies brings a scorching intensity to Williams’ classic tale.
