The Resident Ensemble Players at UD will present Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” October 15-November 1. See it. You’ll be emotionally spent by the third act—and grateful for the experience. “This is an exciting, funny, moving and sexy play, in which the theme of greed is both timely and pertinent,” says artistic director Sandy Robbins. “Cat” depicts the ultimate dysfunctional family, an avaricious group intent on clawing the family fortune rather than honoring their dying patriarch. The pivotal character is Maggie, “the cat,” whose rejections from an apathetic husband make her ache with loneliness. Maggie is played by Elizabeth Heflin, who joins REP after a celebrated tenure at Houston’s Alley Theatre. Director Adrian Hall has directed premieres of several Tennessee Williams plays, working alongside the iconic Southern playwright. That’s key, says Robbins. “Adrian has a deep and personal understanding of the play.” For more, contact REP at udel.edu/theatre or 831-2204.
