"I've got the guts to die.  What I want to know is do you have the guts to live?" - Big Daddy. 

Sometimes described as Williams' greatest play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was the playwrights’ favorite. 

Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
, this stunning drama captivates audiences today. In a plantation house, a family celebrates the 65th birthday of Big Daddy, as they sentimentally dub him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety. Greed, sins of the past, and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds.

Intrusive, conniving relatives plot to disrupt the event, eager to see daughter-in-law Maggie put in her place and her husband, Brick, tumbled from his position of most-beloved son.
