The Chautauqua Theater Company's summer season opens with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which begins performances June 28 and runs through July 7.
Along with Harris Yulin and Candy Buckley, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof features Conservatory actors Carly Zien (Yale School of Drama) and Peter Mark Kendall (recent graduate of Trinity Rep/Brown MFA program) as Maggie and Brick, along with Matt Raich (Gooper), Mallory Portnoy (Mae), Anthony Goes (Dr. Baugh) and David Vegh (Rev. Tooker). The production is directed by Lisa Rothe (Hold These Truths).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
