Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
March 8 - 25
In Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the wealthy and dysfunctional Pollitt family gathers to celebrate aging patriarch Big Daddy's birthday. But there is more to this gathering than a family reunion. Lurking under every practiced interaction between the Pollitts is an ulterior motive, behind every smile, a challenge, and within every word, the specter of mendacity. For the Pollitts, the truth is as hazy as the late summer sun in Mississippi, and the only way to find it is to journey through the lies.
