Sun, 03/09/2014 - 2:00pm - 4:45pm

A wealthy southern family gathers to celebrate the 65th birthday of Big Daddy, but a number of evils poison the gaiety. Greed, sins of the past, and desperate hopes for the future fuel a rising competition for favor as Big Daddy's impending death becomes apparent. Maggie, Big Daddy’s daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she’s finally become pregnant by his favorite son, Brick, but Brick won’t cooperate, preferring to stay in a mild alcoholic haze the entire length of his visit. Swarming around Maggie and Brick are their intrusive, conniving relatives, all eager to see Maggie put in her place and Brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son.
