Formatted abstract “There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odour of mendacity!” – Big Daddy.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a play about the tragedy of lies, betrayal, bitterness, regret and greed. It also explores infidelity, homosexuality and existential angst within a plantation home in the Mississippi Delta. Set on the evening of Big Daddy Pollitt’s sixty-fifth birthday, in the bed-sitting room of his son Brick and wife Maggie, what unfolds is a family drama centred around the imminent decline of Big Daddy to cancer and the desire of one brother to assume control of the estate while the other commits himself to drinking away his “disgust”.
