This Young Vic production of Tennessee Williams's 1955 Pulitzer Prize-winning "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" burns bright enough to both scorch and illuminate. This searing, poetic story of a family's fight for survival, brings combustible conviction to a smoldering classic that has only rarely ignited in performance in recent years.
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?
Captured live from the NT Live stage, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is directed by Benedict Andrews and starring a perfectly paired Jack O'Connell and Sienna Miller.
