CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF by Tennessee Williams
4 February - 5 March 2016
“Oh, you weak, beautiful people who give up with such grace. What you need is someone to take hold of you – gently, with love, and hand your life back to you”
In a plantation-owner’s mansion on an airless Mississippi night, faded golden boy Brick and his beautiful but frustrated wife Maggie have gathered with the rest of the family to celebrate Big Daddy’s 65th birthday.
“Superb acting breathes new life into an American masterpiece…..[a] compelling production”
★★★★ The Stage
As the grandchildren sing and the alcohol flows, deep currents of desire and deceit pull the evening inexorably towards disaster.
“Catrin Stewart is a superb, captivating Maggie”
★★★★ The Telegraph
Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is one of the greatest American plays, a classic of Twentieth Century drama staged now for the first time at Theatr Clwyd.
“….a compelling production. An impressive start to the tenure of Tamara Harvey
as Theatr Clwyd’s new artistic director.”
★★★★ Daily Post
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is directed by Robert Hastie, Associate Director of The Donmar Warehouse. His recent work includes acclaimed productions of My Night With Reg by Kevin Elyot in the West End and Splendour, by Cardiff-born playwright Abi Morgan (whose screenwriting credits include Suffragette).
