Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Jason Gerace

Award-winning director Jason Gerace, artistic associate at the American Theater Company, takes the helm for his first Oakton production: a Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic. Southern manners collide with greed and deceit at a birthday party for the “Delta’s biggest cotton planter” and Pollitt patriarch. Tempers explode as family members fight tooth and nail to come out on top. A powerful exploration of death, societal norms, and how the sins of the past can haunt us—woven together by some of the best-known characters in 20th-century drama: Big Daddy, Big Mama, Brick, Gooper . . . and passionate Maggie—the cat on a hot tin roof.
