For the latest show headed to the stage of the Apollo Theatre audiences will take a trip to the Deep South as they spend time with a family in Mississippi, witnessing the dysfunction and secrets that threaten to tear them apart. It will be a transformative experience as audiences leave behind Shaftesbury Avenue and find themselves in the heat of the Southern United States.
The play is Tennessee Williams’ Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and the production is the Young Vic Theatre’s, with some talented names bringing the characters to life for the latest generation of theatregoers.
Sienna Miller is one of those names as she takes on the role of Maggie (‘The Cat’) alongside Jack O’Connell’s Brick. Together they work under the direction of Benedict Andrews to craft a play that will surely be one of the most talked-about of the year.
After all, even before Miller and O’Connell step into the roles, Cat On The Hot Tin Roof already has a world-class reputation. Ever since it was first penned in the mid-1950s it has been provided audiences with some compelling themes, from death to deceit, ensuring it has a lasting legacy that will continue to attract theatregoers well into the future. As such it is easy to see why it has been staged in the UK on countless occasions, with a recent production at the Novello Theatre in 2009 attracting theatregoers from around the world.
The story focuses on a group of iconic characters, from married couple Brick and Maggie to the family’s patriarch Big Daddy and his wife Big Mama. The former couple are visiting the family’s plantation in Mississippi for Big Daddy’s birthday but during the course of the show we will see how secrets and tensions can bubble over, with health issues being kept from Big Daddy and an unhappy married life leading to a chaotic night in the lives of this family.
With a great cast and a story that has won over audiences for decades, the arrival of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof will be cause for celebration in 2017 as Tennessee Williams’ work lives on.
The production follows other stand-out shows like Travesties when it runs at the Apollo Theatre from Monday 24th July 2017 (previews from Thursday 13th July 2017).
