Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a play by Tennessee Williams. One of Williams's more famous works and his personal favorite, the play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955. Set in the "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 Maggie the "Cat", Brick's wife.

Maggie especially has a strange reason to live: to be the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, with no purpose in life other than to endure the unpleasant heat, to survive it. The more she digs into the other characters, it becomes clear that although they have these strange reasons for living--like her husb ...more
The story is centered around a family in crisis, a sizzling drama of desire, avarice and deception set in the steamy American Deep South, you can almost feel the heat coming off the pages. The play condenses so much life and emotion, it's remarkable really. Feuds, tortured pasts, anger, guilt, love, jealousy, envy, revenge, sorry, sadness, lust, all crammed into a relatively short work. Would love to see it performed on ...more

The first act slowly winds up to a very dramatic finish and tensions are racked up higher still in act 2. Then something strange happens - act 3 occurs twice! Williams has included his original draft of act 3 and the performance version, modified in response to the orig ...more

So here is Tennessee Williams coming out, with his customary rage and insight. And darkness.
Once again, I'm surprised. This is the most I've seen homosexuality dealt with, so far; EM Forster hinted at it, and there was Oscar Wilde, but it was all innuendo and shadows before. This feels very bold, and I ...more

Our English teacher made us watch the movie in class when I was in high school, and I found it fantastic. So I went to read on several other Tennessee Williams plays after that, but for an unknown reason, I never got to this one. I finally corrected this.
It's quite a different experience to watch the movie and read the play. Both are great, but reading the play adds to ...more

Brick, çok yakın arkadaşının ölümü üzerine kendini alkole vermiş, hayattan adeta kopmuş bir adam. Bu durum en çok karısı Maggie'yi etkiliyor; çünkü Maggie ve Brick uzun zamandır bir cinsel hayata sahip değiller. Maggie pa ...more
تنسي ويليامز ثابت كرد؛ اگه داستان جذابي هم براي گفتن نداشتيد با شخصيت پردازي قوي ميتونيد مخاطب رو همراه خودتون بياريد و در مواردي حتي ميخ كوبش كنيد.
My favorite lines of Margaret talking to Mae:
Why did y’give dawgs names to all your kiddies?
Dixie, Trixie, Buster, Sonny, Polly! Sounds like four dogs and a parrot.
I cannot wait to watch the movie.
I watched the movie and loved it! Oh, Elizabeth Taylor was so beautiful! I would give the movie 10 Stars!
The director did an awesome job recreating Tennessee Williams’ play.
I can see the minor script changes from the story, but it works fab ...more
Ce imi place cel mai mult la piesele lui de teatru este ca sunt profund umane, ca au o actiune liniara, dar nu sunt legate de un context temporal, sunt general valabile si sunt la fel de actuale si acum.
Todas aquellas cosas que dicen que el autor expresa en esta 'obra maestra', no las encontré. Vi atisbos, pero no más que eso.
El nivel de critica es muy alto, eso seguro, se sobre entiende, pero las etiquetas que le han puesto a esta obra son tan grandes que crean expectativas gigantes.
A lo mejor tengo que masticarla y digerirla otro poco para ver su grandeza, de momento brilla por su ausencia. Me pareció una lectura medianamente interesante, sobre una familia fals ...more
