The Story

Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is an explosive portrait of a Mississippi family, charged with verbal fireworks, savage humor and sexual friction. Nothing is as it seems in this house: The tempestuous Maggie fights to maintain the facade of a happy marriage. Brick, a former gridiron hero, turns to drink seeking respite from his fiery wife and controlling father. Big Daddy is dying, but believes he’s in perfect health. His eldest son and daughter-in-law secretly plot to secure their place in the will. In a maze of avarice, hypocrisy and hidden desire, Big Daddy learns the painful truth about his illness as Maggie struggles to win back her husband and preserve the family.
