Tennessee at his best
Cat on A Hot Tin Roof is one of three plays that rank among Tennessee's finest. Maggie wants back the affection of her alcoholic husband. Brick wants to drink until he "hears that click" and all of his problems fade away. Big Daddy wants to know why his son drinks. Big Mama wants to know from Maggie what is wrong with her son's marriage. Sister Woman is scheming to see to it that she, her husband, and her brood of "no neck monsters" inherit the estate. Brother Man wants the love and affection of his parents lavished on Brick. So, what is Brick's problem? You will have to hear Maggie explain that night spent with Brick's late best friend, Skipper.
All of these problems come to a dramatic conclusion on a stormy night, in and out of the house.
