"This thrilling revival directed by Benedict Andrews burns bright enough to scorch"
"A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted with Sienna Miller and Jack O’Connell on powerful and moving form"
The Sunday Times
"A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable"
"Miller and O’Connell get to a raw and naked truth."
"Sienna Miller gets right to the heart of Maggie. Jack O’Connell impressively weaves between withdrawal and outbursts of violence"
The Financial Times
"This stripped-back ‘Cat’ catches fire. Mississippi Magic. Colm Meaney is terrific"
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
The truth hurts.
On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie 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?
Sienna Miller stars as Maggie alongside Jack O’Connell as Brick and Colm Meaney as Big Daddy. A return to the stage for director Benedict Andrews following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Tennessee Williams’ searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival is a modern masterpiece.
