Synopsis

One of the great theatre pieces of US literature, this play was Tennessee Williams’ personal favourite, and presents excellent challenges for actors, not least being a facility to master the Southern States accent.

 

The play is set in the early ‘50’s in a plantation home in the Mississippi Delta.

 

Characters-

Maggie (the ‘cat’) - 20s (maybe early 30s)

Brick- 20s-early 30s. Ex-‘football’ player, so actor should be tallish, with the appropriate physique.

Mae - 30s

Big Mama – 50s on

Big Daddy- the play is set on his 60th birthday. Physically imposing.

Gooper – Brick’s brother. 30s

Rev Tooker- elderly

Dr Baugh- elderly

3 children (2f, 1m). 9 - 12 yrs old
