Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

09/13/2018 to 10/14/2018

Baltimore Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert Street, Baltimore, MD 21202

In this enduring American classic, family ties and layers of lies collide over the course of one simmering Southern summer night. Themes of morality, greed, and desire play across the stage in this explosive drama about what can happen when illusions begin to unravel. Brick, racked with guilt over his best friend’s death, numbs his pain with drink. Maggie, his wife, is determined to win even fleeting attention from her neglectful husband. But when three generations come together to celebrate a birthday—and discuss a will—all of the players start to crack under the pressure and the heat. How long can tensions build in a house boiling over with uncertainty, secrets, and maybe even love? Cost: $25-$70. Website: https://www.centerstage.org/. Phone Number: 410-332-0033.
