General Seating, Cafe style. Dessert and beverage included! Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the story of a Southern family in crisis, especially the husband Brick and wife Maggie 'the Cat', and their interaction with Brick's family over the course of one evening's gathering at the family estate in Mississippi. The party is to celebrate the birthday of patriarch Big Daddy Pollitt, 'the Delta's biggest cotton-planter' and his return from the Ochsner Clinic with what he has been told is a clean bill of health. All family members (except Big Daddy and his wife Big Mama) are aware of Big Daddy's true diagnosis: He is dying of cancer. His family has lied to Big Daddy and Big Mama to spare the aging couple from pain on the patriarch's birthday but, throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear that the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit for itself. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is one of Williams's more famous works and his personal favorite. The play features motifs such as social mores, greed, superficiality, mendacity, decay, sexual desire, repression and death. The play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955. The original production starred Barbara Bel Geddes, Burl Ives, and Ben Gazzara. The play was adapted as a motion picture of the same name in 1958, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman as Maggie and Brick, with Burl Ives and Madeleine Sherwood recreating their stage roles. Williams made substantial revisions to the play for a revival in 1974. PCT will be performing the revised 1974 version.
