National Theatre Live: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Location: Josephine Louis Theater, 20 Arts Circle Drive, Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts (Map it)
On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy's birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real - and which will win out?
‘This thrilling revival burns bright enough to scorch.’
