Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by HMT
Spa Little Theater, Saratoga Spa State Park
February 26 & 27 – 8:00 PM
February 28 – 2:00 PM
This Pulitzer Prize winner is an explosive portrait of a southern family, celebrating “Big Daddy’s” 65th birthday. As the conniving relatives learn he’s dying, verbal fireworks and savage humor erupt. Fiery Maggie fights to maintain the facade of her marriage to Brick, a former gridiron hero, who drinks to escape her and his controlling father. The eldest son and daughter-in-law plot to secure their place in the will. In a maze of avarice, hypocrisy and hidden desire, truths are revealed and souls laid bare.
