This is a gripping and intensely moving play, a play that can hold its own with anything written in the post-O'Neill American theater…Brilliant scenes, scenes of sudden and lashing dramatic power, break open…There is, indeed, no one moment in the evening when the stinging accuracy of Mr. Williams' ear for human speech is not compellingly in evidence…Mr. Williams is the man of our time who comes closest to hurling the actual blood and bone of life onto the stage; he is also the man whose prose comes closest to being an incisive natural poetry.

In what is possibly Tennessee Williams’ most famous and well-loved dramas of the modern theatre, Maggie and Brick are trying to survive the ever present tension when Brick’s family gets together to celebrate Big Daddy’s 65th (and possibly last) birthday.  As the family members jockey for power and favoritism, secrets are exposed and weaknesses and insecurities are put to the test.  In this latest version of the timeless drama, emotions have never been laid more bare and we have never felt so close to these beautifully flawed characters.  Come on in, Maggie the Cat awaits.
