Synopsis

_
In Tennessee Williams’ stunning masterpiece and Pulitzer Prize winner, a powerful Southern family gathers to celebrate the sixty-fifth birthday of patriarch Big Daddy. The mood is sombre, despite the festivities, as the fact that Big Daddy is dying of cancer becomes general knowledge. In a scramble to secure their part of his estate, family members hide the truth about his diagnosis from him and Big Mama. In the centre of this rich and timeless portrait of a dysfunctional family, stands Maggie’s passionate and unrelenting fight for the love of her alcoholic husband Brick, who has been on a downward spiral since the suicide of his friend Skipper. His indifference and bitterness gives his weasly brother Gooper every opportunity to outbid him in the on-going fight for the family fortune, much to Maggie’s dismay, as she has known and feared poverty since childhood. The ensuing stormy confrontations bring to light raw emotions and unexpected demons which threaten to rip apart the family forever.
