Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece, dealing with sexual repression, addiction, and the lies we tell each other and ourselves, is given new life in this unflinching and powerful production.
The scorching sun beats down on a family as they celebrate their patriarch's birthday. All of them are telling lies, especially alcoholic Brick and his desperate wife Maggie. Their emotionally fraught relationship is plagued by secrets and grudges, only exacerbated by the constant family politics. As the lies spiral out of control, and tensions both familial and sexual build, which version of the truth will prevail?
