An American classic, Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is set in the sweltering Mississippi Delta where Brick and his wife Maggie “the Cat” are celebrating the birthday of Brick’s father, Big Daddy. But Big Daddy is disturbed and disappointed by the tempestuous relationship between his prized son Brick, an aging football hero who is desperately trying to escape reality, and the beautiful and feisty Maggie. As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of Southern gentility slips away, and long-hidden truths emerge in this powerful, not to be missed, Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece.
