Breakdown

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Description: This steamy southern drama, filled with characters whose lives are torn with passion and lies won a Pulitzer Prize and was one of Tennessee Williams favorite plays. From the cat-like Maggie, the repressed Brick, with his latent longings, to the shadows of Big Daddy and Big Mama, this powerful story twists and turns our hearts and stirs our own longings. Come with us as we inhabit their world and watch it explode.

Seeking:

Maggie
late 20's, a society beauty without money. Frantic abut her future and eaten up with longing for her husband, who constantly rejects her. Has a sharp tongue and devilish sense of humor.

Brick
late 20's, a former athlete. A drinking man, but it does not show on him yet. Cooly detached from life and other people. Not without humour.

Big Daddy
65, described as a red-neck, is a successful self-made man. His presence exudes immense power. Coarse, with a cruel sense of humor.

Big Mama
63, devoted to big Daddy. High energy and largely expressive, she goes from childlike playfulness and enthusiasm to outrage.

Gooper
mid 30's, a successful corporate lawyer. Self rightous.

Mae
mid 30's, a former society beauty. Smug mother of five. Manipulative.

Dr. Baugh
40's-50s, family doctor. A realist.

Rev. Tooker
40's-60's, greedy and opportunistic.

Sookey
female African-American servant, any age.

Lacey
male African-American servant, any age.

Dixie
8-10 year old girl, precocious, bratty.
