The family gathers to celebrate aging patriarch Dad’s birthday. But there is more to this gathering than a family reunion, Dad is dying of cancer, and he hasn’t decided which of his sons will inherit the estate.
His options include favorite son Brick, who drinks himself into oblivion in order to bear his past or his oldest son Gooper with his fertile wife Mae, and their six children. While sensuous, Maggie “the cat” tries to work her wiles to secure a future for them, Brick spirals deeper into despair, crippled by both physical pain and emotional loss.
A cat on a roof of hot zinc is an intense family drama, conveyed in a sincere and deep way, but this play also has that sense of humor that makes us laugh in deeply dramatic moments.
This version of A cat on a roof of hot zinc seeks to move the viewer to talk about universal and eternal conflicts such as death, lies, sex, repression, homosexuality, ambition, frustrations and everything that happens before a Great crisis within the family nucleus, place specialized for centuries in hosting great tragedies like Hamlet, Macbeth, Bernarda Alba or Oedipus.Return
