Brecksville Theater on the Square is proud to announce the first production of its 40th season, the American Stage Classic, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Performance dates are 1/31 through 2/16...with Friday and Saturday Evening performances at 7:30 and Sunday Matinees at 2PM  (No Show on 2/2).  All shows are at the Historic Town Hall on the square in Brecksville.
Brian Westerley directs the production, which is the landmark creation of the great American playwright, Tennessee Williams and is widely regarded as one of Williams' favorites.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the story of a Southern family in crisis, especially the husband and wife Brick and Margaret (usually called Maggie or "Maggie the Cat"), and their interaction with Brick's family over the course of one 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 his wife, Big Mama) are aware of Big Daddy's true diagnosis: he is dying of cancer. His family has lied to Big Daddy and Big Mama to spare the aging couple from pain on the patriarch's birthday but, throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear that the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit for itself.
The Cast includes Rachel Anderson and Bradley Haramis as Maggie and Brick, roles depicted in the 1958 film by Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman.
Dave Hundertmark tackles the challenging role of Big Daddy, with Jamie Satterfield as Sister Woman, Christopher Fortunato as Gooper and Sally Spitz as Big Mama.
