San Jose Stage Company presents
Tennesee Williams'
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
Directed by Lee Sankowich

“Williams's favorite among his plays…his most impassioned and articulate statement on human isolation, the wrenching problems of communication between people and the ways in which death defines life.” — The New York Times

The centerpiece of The Stage’s “Explosively Charged” Season 36 is the revered American Classic by one of the country’s most celebrated playwrights, Tennessee Williams. CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF is a fiery collision of generations, mendacity, sexuality, and the ties that bind. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play takes us on a steamy jaunt — filled with rich southern humor — through bourbon-soaked lies on a search for the truth.

Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece sizzles in this hot tale of the ties that bind. On a steamy night on the Mississippi Delta the Pollitt Plantation swarms with angst as the family gathers to celebrate the 65th birthday of their hot-tempered patriarch, Big Daddy. The heat begins to rise as the Southern family is thrust into crisis when Big Daddy announces he must choose one of his sons to inherit his estate. As Brick, his favorite son, and Brick’s wife Maggie struggle to guard their demons the rest of the family claws at any opportunity to topple their dynasty. With the future of the family in peril-- accusations swirl, ulterior motives are exposed and mendacity reigns.

The cast of CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF will feature Randall King* as “Big Daddy,” Judith Siebenthal as “Big Mama,” Rob August* as “Brick,” Allison F. Rich* in “Maggie,” Will Springhorn Jr.* as “Gooper,” Tanya Marie as “Mae,” Michael Bellino as “Reverend Tooker” and Tim Fullerton as “Doctor Baugh.

In addition to Mr. Sankowich^, the production team includes Garland Thompson, Jr. (Production Manager), Jack D. Myles* (Stage Manager), Giulio Perrone (Set Designer), Ashley Garlick (Costume Designer), Michael Johnson (Lighting Designer), Steve Schoenbeck (Sound Designer & Sound Supervisor), Robert Pickering (Master Carpenter & Scenic Painter), Phyllis Garland (Props Master) and Kimily Conkle (Dialect Coach).

*Member of Actors' Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers.
