National Theatre Live: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Sunday, November 11, 2018 - 1:00pm
Taylor Little Theatre

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers 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? Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, captured live on stage in London’s West End, will screen Sunday, Nov. 11, at 12:55 p.m. in Mercyhurst’s Taylor Little Theatre as part of the National Theatre Live series. Benedict Andrews’ revival of the Tennessee Williams masterpiece stars Sienna Miller, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $12 for students/youth.
