DESCRIPTION:

The scorching heat is almost as steamy as the lies they tell at Big Daddy’s birthday celebration.

The National Theatre presents Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece.  Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ “thrilling revival” (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

★★★★

“A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable” The Independent

★★★★

“Miller and O’Connell get to a raw and naked truth” The Metro
