Tennesee Williams' award-winning play about Big Daddy Pollitt and the relationships among members of his family, primarily between his son and daughter-in-law, Brick and Maggie.
It’s Big Daddy’s 65th birthday celebration. But the mood is somber: greed, sins of the past, and desperate, clawing hopes for the future clash as the knowledge that big daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds. Maggie, Big Daddy’s daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she’s finally become pregnant by his favorite son, Brick. But Brick won’t cooperate in maggie’s plans, preferring to stay in a mild alcoholic haze. Swarming around Maggie and Brick are their intrusive, conniving relatives, all eager to see maggie put in her place and brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son. By evening’s end, Maggie’s ingenuity, fortitude and passion will set things right, and Brick’s love for his father, never before expressed, will retrieve him from his path of destruction and return him to Maggie’s loving arms.
