Cat on a Hot Tin Roof directed by Laura Delchiaro

Written by Tennessee Williams, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the drama of the seething passions that beset a wealthy Southern family whose lives are stripped of pretense in a shattering moment of revelation.
Brick, the alcoholic son, is tortured by the death of his best friend and his guilt about their relationship. Maggie, his wife, is tormented by her longing for the husband she cannot possess and her craving for security. Big Daddy, his father, unaware that he is dying of cancer, exults in his lust for life.
Gathered together for a celebration of Big Daddy’s sixty-fifth birthday, the family’s conflicts are suddenly, relentlessly exposed in an explosive series of climaxes that forces each of them to part with the half-lies that have shielded them from reality…
