Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Sienna Miller stars as Maggie alongside Jack O’Connell as Brick and Colm Meaney as Big Daddy. A return to the stage for director Benedict Andrews following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Tennessee Williams’ searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival is a modern masterpiece. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

With Brian Gleeson, Richard Hansell, Colm Meaney, Sienna Miller, Jack O’Connell, Lisa Palfrey, Michael J Shannon, Hayley Squires.

    There is something splendidly decadent about this production of Williams's great claustrophobic play about family secrets and lies, or mendacity as they like to say down south, very slowly, in that rhythmic seductive drawl.

    Slinky, seductive in black slip and killer stilettos and coiled with nervous energy, Maggie prowls around the bedroom, talking almost uninterrupted for the entire first act about her loveless, and now sex-less, marriage. It's a big ask of any performer and Miller turns in a faultless performance.

    I came ready and willing to write this off as mere summer filler. But it's well acted, stylishly presented and very nicely, erm, tackled: preferred over nine out of ten Cats, you might say.

    This is one of my favourite films and so when I saw that it was coming on the stage I looked to see if it was on when I was visiting London for work. It was so I booked and I wasn't disappointed. Great performances from all of the cast. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done to all involved.

    I have always loved the film. But this performance took the play to another level. I felt like I was in the room with them watching their lives fracture!! Very powerful
