Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Written by: Tennessee Williams Directed by: Kenneth James Billington Assistant Director/Producer/Stage Manager: Skyler Patton Producer: Ciarra Siller Costume Designer: MJ Scott Sound Designer/Assistant Costume Designer: Caitlin Cardile CAST Ciarra Siller (Maggie), Dennis Hadley (Brick), Charles Hoyes (Big Daddy), Katie Zeiner (Big Mama), Caitlin Cardile (Mae), Skyler Patton (Mae u/s), AJ Brody (Gooper), Kyle Gundlach (Gooper u/s), Jarrod Robbins (Reverend Tooker), and Alan E. Ramos (Doc Baugh) SYNOPSIS In Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the dysfunctional but wealthy Pollitt family gathers to celebrate aging patriarch, Big Daddy's, birthday. Lurking under every practiced interaction between the Pollitts is an ulterior motive. Under every smile, a challenge. And under every statement, the specter of mendacity. For the Pollitts, the truth is as hazy as the late summer sun in Mississippi, and sometimes the only way to find it is to journey through the lies. VENUE: Theatre 68 - Mainstage - February 8th through March 30th, 2018 Performances on Thursday and Friday at 7pm. 2-hours 30 minutes running time with intermission

"These two give the best performances in the show (although everyone does at good job overall), and we can here at least see why Brick is the favorite. He comes across as not a spoiled fool, but someone who fundamentally does not feel comfortable in this world. His seeming success at even living here comes across as an act of courage, although the reserves of such are draining fast. "Mendacity" may be the most famous line in the play, a single word signaling all the fakery, all the pretense of this world. One even gets a sense that Big Daddy, whether he knows it or not, is approaching the same point."
