A FILM BY: Benedict Andrews
WRITTEN BY: Tennessee Williams
STARRING: Sienna Miller, Jack O’Connell, Colm Meaney

Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF played a limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Benedict Andrews’ “thrilling revival” (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather 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?
