    Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    By Tennessee Williams

    Directed by Benedict Andrews

    Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

    On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

    ★★★★
    "A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted"
    Sunday Times

    ★★★★
    "A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable"
    The Independent

    ★★★★
    "Miller and O’Connell get to a raw and naked truth"
    The Metro

    Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival. The cast includes Sienna Miller (High-Rise, American Sniper), Jack O’Connell (Money Monster, Skins) and Colm Meaney (Layer Cake, Star Trek), and is directed by Benedict Andrews, known for his smash hit A Streetcar Named Desire which was broadcast through NT Live in 2014. Produced by the Young Vic following the success of Yerma, the show has had a limited 12-week run in the Apollo Theatre in the West End, and NT Live is very excited to be capturing it to share with audiences.
