CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
By Tennessee Williams
A bold, sexy night of explosive revelations.
Big Daddy is dying. Big Mama is in the dark. Brick is at the bottom of a bottle. But Maggie is alive, desperately alive, and dancing like a cat on a hot tin roof. We meet this fabled family when lies are rife, tensions are boiling over, and their future is at stake.
An incomparable cast gather for this boozy, sultry furore of Southern fireworks. Hugo Weaving will be at his magnetic best as the commanding patriarch. The transcendent Pamela Rabe returns as Big Mama following her Helpmann Award-winning performance in The Children. Harry Greenwood (Cloud Nine) brings brilliance to the stratified role as Brick, and Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon) returns to STC to give us an unmissable Maggie the Cat.
Led by the extraordinary vision of award-winning Artistic Director Kip Williams, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will be an unforgettable night at the theatre.
