About the show

The Gallery Players presents a new staging of this classic from Tennessee Williams. Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. More…

From the show:

In a plantation house, a family celebrates the 65th birthday of Big Daddy, as they sentimentally dub him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety. Greed, sins of the past, and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds. Intrusive, conniving relatives plot to disrupt the event, eager to see daughter-in-law Maggie put in her place and her husband, Brick, tumbled from his position of most-beloved son. How will the evening end as tensions build? Will Brick speak candidly with his father before it’s too late? Can Maggie’s ingenuity, fortitude and passion set things right?
