A scorching summer’s night in Mississippi. On a cotton plantation, a Southern family gathers to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. In the steamy, oppressive heat, lies and deceits dance between Maggie and her has-been hero husband Brick.
A shattering revelation. And a play to take control of the family fortune. When secrets and searing tensions combine, family and feelings must be faced with unwavering honesty. Afterall, the future of Maggie’s marriage is at stake. And with the entire family in crisis, she will have to be as clever as a cat to land on her feet. But which version of the truth is real? And which one will win out?
