Secrets and sexual tensions drive Tennessee Williams' dramatic masterpiece

Why See Cat On A Hot Tin Roof?

Tennessee Williams' Opus Comes To Chicago

Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof became iconic American playwright Tennessee Williams' best known work. Tying together the theme of class, greed, homophobia, gender-based oppression and sexual repression, Williams' poignant social commentary is a masterclass in tension and has enjoyed numerous stage and film revivals including the 1958 Oscar-nominated adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor.

The story takes place in the American South, during the sweltering heat of Summer. One steamy night a family comes together to celebrate the birthday of wealthy patriarch Big Daddy, but his son Brick and his wife Maggie's secrets and private life starts to unravel as tensions rise with the stifling heat. Don't miss the classic work as it enjoys a strictly limited run at Chicago's Drury Lane Theatre this Summer.
