In the course of one sultry evening, a prominent Southern dynasty is pushed to the brink when tender memories are relived and life altering secrets are revealed. It’s the 65th birthday of wealthy Southern plantation owner Big Daddy and his family has gathered to celebrate, while sparing him the news that he’s dying of cancer. As one son Brick, a hunky former football hero, mysteriously retreats from his desirable but sexually frustrated wife Maggie, his money hungry brother and sister-in-law plot to secure more than their share of the family fortune. Don’t miss this Pulitzer Prize-winning gem, an emotionally intense drama that sizzles with passion and greed like you’ve never experienced before. 

This play contains strong language and mature themes.

Run time: 2 hours and 45 minutes including intermission.
