A Tennessee Williams masterpiece to show at Sierra Cinemas in Grass Valley

Submitted to Prospector

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is about a Southern family in Mississippi and the lies they tell eachother.

Sierra Cinemas presents Tennessee Williams' twentieth century masterpiece, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" broadcast live from The National Theatre in London at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22.

The play, which won Williams the Pulitzer Prize in 1955, played a strictly limited season in London's West End in 2017. This "thrilling revival" (New York Times) is directed by Benedict Andrews ("A Streetcar Named Desire") and stars Sienna Miller alongside Jack O'Connell and Com Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy's birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real — and which will win out?

"A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted." — Sunday Times.

"A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable." — The Independent.

National Theatre Live is an initiative by the National Theatre to broadcast live performances onto cinema screens around the world. Since its first season in June 2009, over 1.8 million people have experienced the work of National Theatre Live in 700 cinemas in 25 countries.
