About This Show

Charged with verbal pyrotechnics, savage humor, and sexual friction, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is Tennessee Williams’s explosive portrait of a Mississippi family jeopardized by hypocrisy, avarice, and hidden desires. In Big Daddy’s house, nothing is as it seems. The overbearing millionaire is dying of cancer, yet he firmly believes he’s in perfect health. His oldest son Gooper and daughter-in-law Mae secretly scheme to secure their inheritance. Meanwhile, his favorite son Brick, a dejected former football star, climbs inside a whisky bottle for solace, threatening his marriage to the sensuous Maggie. As Maggie “the Cat” fights to win back her husband and preserve the family fortune, Big Daddy learns the painful truth about his illness–and the shocking secret behind Brick’s sullen and abusive behavior.

This 50th anniversary production is produced by FASKARSNOPRA productions, and directed by Joe Stanganelli.
