About this show

It's the 65th birthday of wealthy southern patriarch Big Daddy Pollit, who is unknowingly dying of cancer, and his sons Gooper and Brick have arrived on the scene of the family's Mississippi plantation, in hopes of inching closer to his $10 million inheritance. Yet as Brick descends into alcoholism following the death of a college friend, his fragile relationship with his wife Maggie continues to crumble, and the lies and illusion become too much for the family to bear.
