Tennessee Williams's 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's "thrilling revival" (The New York Times) stars Sienna Miller (American Sniper, Foxcatcher) as Maggie and Jack O'Connell (Unbroken) as Brick. Veteran actor Colm Meaney breathes new life into the role of Big Daddy. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers 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?
