cat on a tin

It's Big Daddy's birthday and he's dying. The heat is rising for his family as they square off to take over his enormous estate. His favoured son, Brick, has turned to the bottle to drown out the hypocrisy surrounding him, the truth he can't suppress, and the incessant clawing of his desperately frustrated wife, Maggie the Cat. Tonight is her last chance to claim her stake in the richest land this side of the valley Nile!

Voracious greed, seamy passions and devastating truths reach boiling pitch in Tennessee Williams's scorching portrait of a stinking-rich family on the brink of implosion.

The Corn Exchange return to the Festival, after the sell-out success of Everyday in 2006, with this electrifying Pulitzer-winning classic staged in their inimitable bold style.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is presented through special arrangement with The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee

“Wake up and take notice when The Corn Exchange has a new play on offer.”  The Irish Times

We Feel...
The Corn Exchange are justly regarded as one of the most exciting forces in Irish theatre and their unique take on this classic text is one of the most anticipated Irish productions of the year.
