1981 – “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” by Tennessee WilliamsPosted on: June 12, 1981
“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”, which won a Pulitzer Prize, is a drama of the seething passions that beset a wealthy Southern family whose lives are stripped of pretense in a shattering moment of revelation.
Gathered together in a piously hypocritical celebration of Big Daddy’s sixty-fifth birthday, the family’s conflicts are suddenly, relentlessly exposed in an explosive series of climaxes that forces each of them to part with the half-lies that have shielded them from reality. This brilliant drama eloquently reveals Tennessee Williams’ matchless gift for transforming the essence of life into memorable literature.
