"A searing Sienna Miller sexes up this powerful play to perfection." - Christopher Hart, The Times

"Brilliant, lacerating…unforgettable." - Paul Taylor, Independent

Following his 2014 smash hit production of "A Streetcar Named Desire," Benedict Andrews revives Tennessee Williams' masterpiece "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers at their cotton plantation to celebrate the birthday of Big Daddy (Meaney). The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick (O'Connell) and Maggie (Miller) 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? (Description courtesy of NT Live)
