POMEROY — The River City Players will present Cat on a Hot Tin Roof this weekend at Meigs High School.
The show will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4 and Sunday Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. and 2 p.m., respectively.
One of Tennessee Williams’s best-known works and his personal favorite, the play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955. Set in the bed-sitting room of a plantation home in the Mississippi Delta of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton tycoon, the play examines the relationships among members of Big Daddy’s family, primarily between his son Brick and Brick’s wife Maggie the “Cat”.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof features several recurring motifs, such as social mores, greed, superficiality, mendacity, decay, sexual desire, repression and death. Dialogue throughout is often rendered phonetically to represent accents of the Southern United States.
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof is geared toward mature audiences, containing adult language and situations.
Jennifer Salter is the director of the play.
Cast members are Courtney Ginther as Margaret; Nathan Becker as Brick; Erica Copeland as Mae; Nathan Jeffers as Gooper; Karen Chan as Big Mama; Joseph Balding as Big Daddy; Dan Stewart as Reverend Tooker; Terrence Smith as Doctor Baugh; Jessica Holliday as Sookey; Andrew Ginther as Lacey; and McKayla Powell as Daisy.
