The powerful, highly charged Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is Tennessee Williams’ explosive portrait of a Mississippi family threatened by avarice, secret yearnings, and hypocrisy. The surface is merely an illusion in Big Daddy’s house: as the overbearing millionaire is dying of cancer, he lives in denial, firmly believing in his perfect health. While his oldest son Gooper and daughter-in-law Mae secretly plot a scheme to secure their lofty inheritance, Big Daddy’s favorite son Brick, a dejected former football star, turns to alcohol to cope with his secret desires. With Brick’s marriage to the seductive Maggie on the verge of destruction, Maggie “the Cat” fights to win back her husband and preserve the family fortune, only leading to Big Daddy learning the painful truth about his own illness—and the demons and hidden desires that drive his favorite son.
