Big Daddy is dying; the vultures are circling.

Sizzling with verbal fireworks, savage humour and sexual friction, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF is a timeless, indelible portrait of a wealthy Mississippi clan.

Surrounded by greedy relatives, over bearing in-laws, hyperactive children and an indifferent husband “Maggie-the-Cat” is forced to confront her uncertain future as she manoeuvres through a maze of avarice and hypocrisy.

Pulitzer Prize winning dramatist, novelist, and poet, Tennessee Williams’ plays explore the conflict between a fading ethos of Southern gentility and a savage modern world.

Smoldering with sensuality, audacious characters, and rich in poetic language CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF is one of the enduring classics of twentieth century American drama.

"There are few playwrights who plumb the human heart so deeply"
The Daily Telegraph

"A delicately wrought exercise in human communiation…As theatre, it is superb".
The New York Times
