Kurt Beattie, in his final year as artistic director, will direct the production, which will play the Seattle, WA, venue April 17-May 17. The cast will be headed by Laura Griffith as Maggie the Cat, Brandon O’Neill as Brick, John Aylward as Big Daddy and Marianne Owen as Big Mama. Additional casting will be announced at a later time.
According to previous press notes, "Big Daddy Pollitt, the richest cotton planter in the Mississippi Delta, is about to celebrate his 65th birthday. He is distressed by the rocky relationship between his beloved son Brick, an aging football hero who has turned to drink, and his beautiful and feisty wife Maggie. As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of Southern gentility slips away as unpleasant truths emerge and greed, lies and suppressed sexuality reach a boiling point."
Performances will play The Allen Theatre, located at 700 Union Street. For tickets call (206) 292-7676 or visit www.acttheatre.org.
