Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
By Tennessee Williams

Event details


January 6, 2019 7:00PM


Michigan Theater


On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers 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 steamy presentation of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, a play that has featured a long line of prominent actresses in the role of Maggie Pollitt, is set in the modern day. Arguably considered Tennessee Williams’s most successful play and a masterpiece of the 20 th century, it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1955.

“This thrilling revival…burns bright enough to scorch.” (New York Times)
