Montana Repertory Theatre presents the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Coming to Lutcher Theater on Friday, March 7, 2008 at 7:30pm.
To commemorate twenty-five years since his death, Montana Rep is celebrating Tennessee Williams’ legacy by presenting his acclaimed 1955 drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the story of Brick and Maggie Pollitt, the beautiful yet tragic couple poised to inherit the largest plantation in the Mississippi Delta. Brick, a former football hero, is confined by injury to the upstairs bedroom of his family’s estate.

 Maggie, his sultry bride, is determined to win the family fortune. On this summer evening the entire Pollitt family has congregated to celebrate Brick’s father’s sixty-fifth birthday. There are fireworks and champagne, gifts and songs, but underneath the festive exterior deceptions lie, threatening to tear this idyllic Southern family apart at it’s very foundation. At the center of the fray is Brick, indifferent to his father’s millions and determined to drink away the dark secret he and Maggie have been hiding for years.

Tennessee Williams is the American South’s greatest playwright. The winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and four New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, Tennessee authored twenty-five full-length plays, dozens of short plays and screenplays, two novels, sixty short stories, over a hundred poems, and an autobiography during his illustrious forty-six year career. His work has been translated into over twenty-seven languages and seen countless productions in theatres all across the globe.
Montana Repertory Theatre is excited to bring Cat on a Hot Tin Roof to audiences as their 2008 national tour. In the tradition of Tennessee’s Streetcar Named Desire in 2004, the Montana Rep specialize in bringing new life to classics of the American stage.
Montana Rep is funded in part by a grant from the Montana Arts Council (an agency of state government); with support from the Montana State Legislature; The University of Montana; the Montana Cultural Trust; the Dramatists Guild Fund, Inc.; and the Agnes Ranjo Capps Fund for the Colony.
