Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is Tennessee Williams’ prize-winning classic and, following its sell-out run on Broadway, it opens at the Novello Theatre in London’s West End in November.

The show features an all black cast which includes award winning actors James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad, Adrian Lester and Sanaa Lathan.

In Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, a powerful Southern family gathers at a birthday celebration for patriarch Big Daddy (Jones), who does not know that he is dying of cancer. In a scramble to secure their part of his estate, family members hide the truth about his diagnosis from him and Big Mama (Rashad). Tensions mount between alcoholic former football hero Brick (Lester) and his beautiful but sexually frustrated wife Maggie “the Cat” (Sanaa). As their troubled relationship comes to a stormy and steamy climax, a shockwave of secrets is finally revealed.

Tickets are on sale now, booking from 21st November 2009 – for more information and to check availability go to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Tickets
