Running time: three hours (with two intermissions)

In ACT's first season, Seattle audiences got to see Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof performed by the city's first summer stock company. Now, 50 years later, the play is a mainstay in the theatre canon, produced regularly around the world and with Broadway revivals occurring nearly every decade. The return of Big Daddy, Brick, and Maggie shows how ahead of its time this Pulitzer-winning play (performed on Broadway in 1955) was in grappling with familial expectations, deception and sexual desire. Kurt Beattie directs this stormy and steamy American classic.

Age recommendation: 14+ for adult themes
