Jen Danby, Charles Black & More Set for Mississippi Mud's CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF; Full Cast Announced
Obie- Award winning and Tony nominated director Austin Pendleton directs Tennessee Williams' Cat on A Hot Tin Roof in a new Indie theatre production with the Mississippi Mud. This is the play that Ben Brantley described as Williams' "most impassioned and articulate statement on human isolation, the wrenching problems of communication between people and the ways in which death defines life." It is brought to life in a new intimate bold raw space production that unfolds in "real time" and places center stage the lush language of this modern classic fable.
Post-Show Talkbacks with Austin Pendleton and cast Saturday October 19 and Friday November 1.

The sensuality and excitement of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof first heated up Broadway in 1955 with its Gothic American story of two brothers and their wives vying for the inheritance of their dying father, Big Daddy, amid a whirlwind of sexuality untethered (in the person of Maggie the Cat), and the burden of love repressed (in the person of her husband, Brick Pollitt).
