London National Theatre in HD – Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

London National Theatre in HD – Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
Description:

Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) starred Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

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?

Captured live on stage, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will screen in cinemas around the world from 22 February 2018. Written by Tennessee Williams, directed by Benedict Andrews.

Recommended for ages 15+.

Running time: 3 hours 5 minutes

Pappy • BCA Summer Concert Series

Pappy • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

Pappy evokes images of preachers, ramblin’ gamblers and whiskey stills draped over the Appalachian Mountains acoustic guitar and fiddles. His vocals are the perfect vessel for the storytelling-style of songwriting he is known for. Banjo figures largely into the music, and his picking prowess will come as no surprise to fans of Cabinet, the bluegrass/jam outfit he has helped propel to acclaim via lively and well-received shows on the touring and festival circuit. But Pappy is not all bluegrass. Not entirely. Drawing from the well of earthy rock, country, folk and gospel artists that have come before, like The Band, Grateful Dead, John Prine, his performances are low-key and understated, but the musicianship — not surprisingly — is of the highest order. Pappy is carrying on a tradition as old as the hills but, as new as each following morning.
