Tennessee Williams Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece graces the Henry C. Bishop stage this spring.

Brick, the aging football star and favorite son of Big Daddy, is married to gorgeous and feisty Maggie “the Cat”. But Brick seems to be living in another reality, constantly drinking and uninterested in his seemingly perfect wife. Big Daddy is dying of cancer and has yet to decide which of his sons will inherit his estate. And on a particular sweltering Mississippi evening, as the family gathers for Big Daddy’s birthday, long-hidden truths will come to light, and this dysfunctional Southern family will forever be changed.
