Cat On A Hot Tin Roof in National Theatre Live broadcast

First Published 1 September 2017, Last Updated 1 September 2017

The Young Vic’s celebrated West End production of Tennessee Williams’ classic Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, currently playing at the Apollo Theatre, will be broadcast to cinemas around the world on 22 February 2018.

Marking the fourth collaboration between the Young Vic and National Theatre Live, the most recent of which saw Billie Piper’s performance in Yerma live streamed internationally last night, tickets for the NTLive broadcast of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof will be released for sale on Monday 25 September 2017.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof features a cast including Sienna Miller (Maggie), Jack O’Connell (Brick), Colm Meaney (Big Daddy), Lisa Palfrey (Big Mama), Hayley Squires (Mae), Brian Gleeson (Gooper), Richard Hansel (Doctor) and Michael J. Shannon (Reverend).

The play is set on a steamy night in Mississippi, where a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. But the scorching heat proves almost as oppressive as the lies they tell, as Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage – which version of the truth is real, and which will win out?

Cat On a Hot Tin Roof concludes its 12 week limited West End run at the Apollo Theatre on 7 October 2017.

Launched in 2009, National Theatre Live broadcasts have been seen by an audience of over 7 million people at 2500 venues in 60 countries. Recent broadcasts include Angels In America with Andrew Garfield, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? with Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill, and Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead with Daniel Radcliffe,

More details of the broadcast be found on the National Theatre Live website.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
