RSVP Community Theatre, in association with the City of Asheboro, is pleased to announce the cast of its production of Tennessee Williams’ classic American drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The show will be presented the evenings of November 6, 7, 13, 14 at 7:30 p.m. and matinees at 2:30 p.m. November 8 & 15 at the Sunset Theatre. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. This play has mature themes and language and is rated PG-13.
Director Michael Henry Carter, no stranger to RSVP, will take the role of Brick. Margaret, also known as Maggie the Cat, will be played by Allison McAlister of High Point. Big Daddy and Big Mama will be acted by Philip Shore and Peggy Kilburn.
Gooper and Mae are to be Justin Tarlton and Alisa Smith McNeill. The role of Doc Reverend Tooker belongs to Mike Applegate.
All major American dramatic families are dysfunctional, it seems. The Lomans from Death of a Salesman, George and Martha of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The family of Big Daddy Pollitt and his fuming brood fit right in to this tradition, and, indeed, helped to formulate it. Brick and Maggie have marital problems because of Brick’s psychological problems and no one in the whole family can see beyond his or her own wellbeing. Big Daddy has made unfounded assumptions about his state of health. Gooper and Mae are lining up their sights on Big Daddy’s ten million dollar estate. The play is a seething cauldron of mendacity, with surprises of tenderness and humor.
