Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

On a sweltering Mississippi night, the lies are as stifling as the heat.

Maggie has fought up from poverty, only to find herself in a passionless, burning marriage. Her husband Brick, a former pro footballer, drinks to drown out the hurt he has bottled up inside.

When the entire Pollitt family meet for Big Daddy’s 65th birthday, the claws are out. As shattering truths threaten to spiral out of control, the family set out to protect themselves, and each other, from falling apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams's lyrical Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is a blazing portrayal of what it takes to survive in a society where we're all desperate to feel free.

A co-production between Curve, Alexandra Palace Theatre, Rose Theatre Kingston and English Touring Theatre, and supported by grant funding from the Royal Theatrical Support Trust (RTST), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will be directed by Anthony Almeida, winner of the2019 RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award with set and costume design by Rosanna Vize.
