“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is the story of a southern family in crisis, especially Brick and his wife, Margaret (usually called Maggie or “Maggie the Cat”), and their interaction with Brick’s family over the course of one evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi. The party is to celebrate the birthday of patriarch Big Daddy Pollitt, “the Delta’sbiggest cotton planter”, and his return from the Ochsner Clinic with what he has been told is a clean bill of health. All family members (except Big Daddy and his wife, Big Mama) are aware of Big Daddy’s true diagnosis: He is dying of cancer. His family has lied to Big Daddy and Big Mama to spare the aging couple from pain on the patriarch’s birthday but, throughout the course of the play, it becomes clear the Pollitt family has long constructed a web of deceit for themselves.
