Tennessee Williams.  ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ is a fiery collision of generations, mendacity, sexuality, and the ties that bind. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play takes us on a steamy jaunt -- filled with rich southern humor -- through bourbon-soaked lies on a search for the truth.

Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece sizzles in this hot tale of the ties that bind. On a steamy night on the Mississippi Delta the Pollitt Plantation swarms with angst as the family gathers to celebrate the 65th birthday of their hot-tempered patriarch, Big Daddy.  The heat begins to rise as the Southern family is thrust into crisis when Big Daddy announces he must choose one of his sons to inherit his estate.  As Brick, his favorite favorite son, and his wife Maggie struggle to guard their demons the rest of the family claws at any opportunity to topple their dynasty.  With the future of the family in peril-- accusations swirl, ulterior motives are exposed and mendacity reigns. Theatre Non-Conforming chose this as its first show as it poetically paints a picture of the failures of trying to conform to society's expectations rather than embracing your truth.

 After having to close 3/13-3/29 due to COVID 19 we will open 5/8. Mart Crowley's landmark 1968 play centers on a group of gay men who gather in a NYC apartment for a friend’s birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity. A true theatrical game-changer, THE BOYS IN THE BAND helped spark a revolution by putting gay men’s lives onstage — unapologetically and without judgment — in a world that was not yet willing to fully accept them.

This show is rated R for adult language, adult humor, adult content, and partial nudity. This show contains depictions of violence. Parental guidance required for children under the age of 15.

ANDREW LIPPA'S, THE WILD PARTY

Book by Andrew Lippa
Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

 

Based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March

A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's Wild Party was an Off-Broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades, including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Obie awards. Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant show features one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written.
