Sydney Theatre Company and UBS present
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
By Tennessee Williams
A family’s fight to survive
Big Daddy is dying. Big Mama is in the dark. Brick is at the bottom of a bottle. But Maggie is alive, desperately alive, and dancing like a cat on a hot tin roof.
Tennessee Williams’ classic play is set on a steamy night in the Mississippi Delta. It’s Big Daddy’s birthday. He’s built his family an empire of 12,000 acres, but that won’t help him beat cancer. Brick, the favourite son, is a golden boy drinking himself into oblivion, while his wife Maggie claws at him for a moment of affection. All the while, lies are rife and the family’s future is at stake.
The incomparable Hugo Weaving will play Big Daddy, Pamela Rabe returns as Big Mama following her Helpmann Award-winning performance in The Children, and Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon) will give us a Maggie the Cat not to be missed. Artistic Director Kip Williams brings us a bold, boozy, sexy night of Southern fireworks.
