Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Fred Wolinsky
NOVEMBER 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 2019
Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece. 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?

Meet the Nowak’s of Buffalo, N.Y.

Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowak’s commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write a play about the family miracle. However, as her plans unravel, the family’s faith is shaken to the very core by a deathbed confession. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.
