Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Date: 25 Mar 2019

The first mainstage production in Sydney of Tennessee Williams’ play since 2013, this production features Hugo Weaving as Big Daddy, Harry Greenwood as his drunken son Brick, Pamela Rabe as Big Mama and Zahra Newman as Maggie, “the cat”.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is set on a steamy plantation 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.

The cast includes Peter Carroll, Josh McConville and Anthony Brandon Wong. Kip Williams directs.
