This Young Vic production was recorded through National Theatre Live from the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End on 22nd February, 2018.

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?

Tennessee Williams’ searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival is a twentieth century masterpiece.
