Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

28 W. Center St. | Logan, UT 



Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the story of a southern family in crisis, especially Brick and his wife, Maggie (the "cat"). We see Brick's family interact over the course of one evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi. There is a party is to celebrate the birthday of patriarch Big Daddy Pollitt, 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 his wife, Big Mama) are aware of Big Daddy's true diagnosis: he is dying of cancer. His family has lied to he and his wife to spare them the pain on his birthday but throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear that the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit.
