Tennessee Williams' 20th-century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played for a limited time in London's West End in 2017.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy's birthday. As Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage, the scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?
