As part of their NT Live screenings, the Dunamaise Arts Centre is delighted to this weekend present direct from London’s West End, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece, was captured live during its strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017.

Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside Jack O’Connell and Irish acclaimed actor Colm 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?

Please note that this stage production has an age guidance of 15+.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will be screened at the Dunamaise at 7pm on Thursday, February 22. Tickets are available, priced €15/€12.
