Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Lively characters, psychological complications. A relentless run for money. A tale of family hypocrisy in a new, powerful translation by Jacek Poniedziałek.

Tennessee Williams’s story of a millionaire from the American South is given a razor-sharp stage rendition by Grzegorz Chrapkiewicz. The brutality of human relationships manifests itself in language and violent emotions. Family ties, both parental and marital, collapse, which is followed by alcohol intoxication and sexual frustrations. The burden of lies, disappointment, pretending, rejection and suffering is unbearable. It is hard to refrain yourself from inflicting unnecessary pain.

Spectacle for adult audiences.
