Go Inside Rehearsals With Sienna Miller for London’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof features set design by Magda Willi, costume design by Alice Babidge, lighting design by Jon Clark, and sound design by Gareth Fry.
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?
