Broadcast live from the National Theatre is the all-star revival of the 20th century masterpiece by Tennessee Williams. Hollywood actors Jack O’Connell, Sienna Miller and Colm Meaney star with Call The Midwife actress Hayley Squires in the play set 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? The production is directed by Benedict Andrews. This is a recording of a performance captured live in front of a theatre audience.
