Big Daddy is dying. Big Mama is in the dark. Brick is at the bottom of a bottle. But Maggie is alive, desperately alive, and dancing like a cat on a hot tin roof. You meet this fabled family when lies are rife, tensions are boiling over and their future is at stake.

An incomparable cast gather for this boozy, sultry furore of Southern fireworks. Hugo Weaving at his magnetic best as the commanding patriarch. The transcendent Pamela Rabe returns as Big Mama following her Helpmann Award-winning performance in The Children. Harry Greenwood (Cloud Nine) brings fresh brilliance to the stratified role of Brick and Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon) will give you an unmissable Maggie the Cat.

They are joined by STC favourites including Peter Carroll (Mary Stuart, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui), Josh McConville (Cloud Nine, All My Sons) and Anthony Brandon Wong (Chimerica). All the while, the extraordinary vision of award-winning Artistic Director Kip Williams continues to turn up the heat.

With a creative team leaning in to Tennessee Williams’ original desires and infusing this time-honoured story with scalding relevance, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will be an unforgettable night at the theatre.
