Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Tennessee Williams's third significant play was a huge commercial success, running for 694 performances on Broadway. It won Williams his third New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and his second Pulitzer Prize (his first being for Streetcar).
Running on the Evjue stage, the tension between Brick, Maggie, Big Daddy and the whole clan, including the “endless line of no-neck monsters,” will be palpable.
