Oldcastle Theatre Company in downtown Bennington is bringing Tennessee Williams’ classic “Cat On a Hot Tin Roof” alive. This timeless classic revolves around one family and the web they have woven to protect their patriarch, Big Daddy (played by Oldcastle veteran Paul Romero) and his wife, Big Momma (Melissa Hurst) from the truth: Big Daddy is dying. Their son, Brick (Loren Dunn) and his wife Maggie (played by newcomer Renata Eastlick) only inflame tensions with their withering marriage. As the evening unravels, so does the family’s web. An American classic, Williams’ favorite play and a great evening of theater.
