On a sweltering Mississippi night, the lies are as stifling as the heat.

Maggie has fought up from poverty, only to find herself in a passionless, burning marriage. Her husband Brick, a former pro footballer, drinks to drown out the hurt he has bottled up inside. When the entire Pollitt family meet for Big Daddy’s 65th birthday, the claws are out.

As shattering truths threaten to spiral out of control, the family set out to protect themselves, and each other, from falling apart.

This bold new revival of Tennessee Williams’s lyrical Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is a blazing portrayal of what it takes to survive in a society where we’re all desperate to feel free.

See what critics had to say, here:

“Executed with razor-sharp precision”

“Completely riveting” The Stage

“An imaginative staging of Tennessee Williams’ classic” The Guardian

“Tense, unnerving and arresting” The Times

“An extraordinary cast… individually and collectively stunning” Good News Liverpool
