New York City
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is set in the Mississippi estate of Big Daddy Pollitt, a domineering cotton tycoon and patriarch of a viperous family in turmoil, on the dual occasion of his 65th birthday and (alleged) clean bill of health. The play focuses on the tempestuous relationship between his grieving, alcoholic, former star-athlete son, Brick, and Brick’s fiery, outspoken wife, Maggie, his scheming elder son and daughter-in-law, and their weaponized brood of “no-neck monsters.” As they come together, everyone knows about Big Daddy’s terminal cancer diagnosis except for him and Big Mama.
