March Meetup - Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Play Reading)

  • March 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the story of a Southern family in crisis.

Husband and wife Brick and Maggie host an evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi. The party is to celebrate the birthday of patriarch Big Daddy Pollitt, "the Delta's biggest cotton-planter", and his return from the Ochsner Clinic with what he has been told is a clean bill of health. All family members (except Big Daddy and Big Mamma) are aware of Big Daddy's true diagnosis: he is dying of cancer.

The play explores the complex themes of greed, superficiality, mendacity, decay, sexual desire, repression, and death.

If you're pressed for time to read the play, then grab a copy of the movie.

We'll be doing a play reading of a few scenes so everyone will have a chance to play a character!

    Love movies and theatre so this sounds like a great idea. MArlon Brando's best performance was in Streetcar Named Desire also a T Williams play.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
