A Mississippi family gather at their country property to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell each other. Brick and Maggie dance around the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. Which version of the truth is real – and which will win out? 

The Young Vic’s 2017 production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the powerful masterpiece by Tennessee Williams, features Sienna Miller (21 Bridges, American Woman) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken, Trial by Fire) in the iconic roles of Maggie and Brick, with Colm Meaney (Gangs of London) as Big Daddy. 



Directed by Benedict Andrews (A Streetcar Named Desire, Three Sisters), the cast also includes Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders), Richard Hansell (The Secret Garden), Lisa Palfrey (Sex Education), Michael J. Shannon (Dark Shadows) and Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake). Filmed for National Theatre Live in 2018 in the Apollo Theatre in the West End, the Young Vic and The Young Ones present a Young Vic production, with special thanks to Jack Keenan. This production is available at least until 9th March 2022.
