BREAKDOWN

CAT is set in the plantation home in the Mississippi Delta of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton tycoon, the play examines the relationships among members of Big Daddy's family, primarily between his son Brick and Maggie the "Cat", Brick's wife.
Margaret (Maggie):
30's, vivacious, sexy and charming; but equally manipulative, driven and domineering. Desperate for the love of her husband Brick, who will never give it to her

Brick:
30's, A drunken ex-football player who is still irresitable, sexy and liked by everyone, despite the fact that he has become numb to most feelings. Forever damaged by the death of his best friend (and probable love of his life) Skipper, he shares the best relationship with his father Big Daddy

Big Daddy:
65, aggressive, rich, and can be brutally mean, admitting that he’s never cared for anyone in his life except for Brick. He never much cared for Big Mama, and would prefer to chase women. With Brick however, he can be open and understanding.

Big Mama:
early 60's, Brick’s mother, loud, fat, and devoted to Big Daddy, though Big Daddy believes otherwise. She’s ecstatic that his health report turns out well, but breaks down when she learns it’s all a lie, attempting to find solace in her favorite son, Brick.

Gooper:
40, Brick’s brother. A successful lawyer with five kids (and another on the way), Gooper nevertheless remains bitter towards Brick for being the parents’ favorite child. He brings the family together for Big Daddy’s birthday in an attempt to secure his own inheritance of the estate.

Mae (Sister Woman):
40, Gooper’s wife. Wound very tight. Mother to 5 children, she runs in respected social circles, but her family lost all their money at some point, so she’s just as eager as Margaret to inherit the Pollitt family fortune.

Doc Baugh:
50's a very dry, conservative southern country doctor

Reverend Tooker:
50s/60's, his overly saccarine pastoral demeanor thinly veils his desire for the Pollitt family to offer the church a sizeable gift after Big Daddy’s passing.
