Set in the Mississippi Delta, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF is a steamy story of manipulation, sexual repression and jealousy. The story revolves around the family of cotton tycoon, Big Daddy. With thoughts of his mortality looming, Big Daddy struggles to control his family while everyone has their own agenda to meet. His son Brick, an ex football star, and his daughter-in-law Maggie the "Cat" are caught in a fruitless marriage full of lies, identity crisis and addiction. Tennessee Williams' familiar drama, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, has stood the test of time with iconic characters and a progressive storyline.

"The plays I direct have to be personal for me in some shape or form. CAT, on many levels, meets that requisite. But what I enjoy more is listening to the flow and mood and nuance and subtext, the words that Williams may not have written crafted with the words which he did," remarks Director and Producing Partner Garry Lee Posey. "There's a palatable smoothness to the hard truths that Williams explores, like sipping a top shelf bourbon on the rocks while creaking back and forth in the antique rocking chair in the 100 degree heat after a day of back breaking sweaty labor."
