Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Tickets
Tennessee Williams' Cat On A Hot Tin Roof returning to the West End's Apollo Theatre!
The truth hurts.
On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

West End Journey: Sienna Miller
Sienna Miller is currently tantalising audiences at the Apollo Theatre in Benedict Andrews' take on the Tennessee Williams classic Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. She stars as the frustrated and unfulfilled Maggie trying to rebuild a connection with Jack O'Connell's tormented and most likely repressed Brick. Much has been made of both stars' nudity during the show, but Miller herself has implored audiences that although Andrews' staging is a bold and eye-catching opening to the production, she hopes to be ultimately judged on her performance.
