Cat on a Hot Tin RoofClassic drama that deserves to up there with the greatest lays ever writtenThe story is centered around a family in crisis a writtenThe story is centered around a family in crisis a drama of desire avarice and deception set in the steamy American Deep South you can almost feel the heat coming off the ages The lay condenses so much life and emotion it s remarkable really Feuds tortured asts anger guilt love jealousy envy revenge sorry sadness lust all crammed into a relatively short work Would love to see it erformed on stage but the book ain t a bad alternative Well worth reading The characters in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof all have these strange reasons for living all based off of some sort of character flaw The way the flaws tie all the characters together symbolically is brilliantMaggie especially has a strange reason to live to be the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with no urpose in life other than to endure the unpleasant heat to survive it The she digs into the other characters it becomes clear that although they have these strange reasons for living like her husband an alcoholic who lives only for the next drink they all seem to have this common mindset that life is miserable and all they want to do is get through itWhat really makes this work is the character Big Daddy who has been diagnosed with cancer The way all the other characters think only of his inheritance and the way Big Daddy clings to life even when it seems like he doesn t even enjoy it is really interesting to readBut compared with The Glass Menagerie or A Streetcar Named Desire this Beyond Citizenship: American Identity After Globalization play falls a little short The dialogue doesn t feel as crisp and it seems like it s just one giant monologue after another Dizzying and fantastical Cat on a Hot Tin Roof examines the emotional toll of sexual repression Brick is an aging former football star stuck in an unhappy marriage to his theatrical wife Maggie After the suicide of his former teammate and best friend Skipper Brick left the field turned to alcohol and now spends his days drinking and warding off Maggie sleas for a child His father might have cancer and the family estate will go to his obnoxious older brother if he and Maggie don t soon start a family Laced with sarcasm the drama centers on Brick s father and Maggie s fumbling attempts to help the Allerhand Fragliches protagonist come to terms with Skipper s death as well as admit the homoerotic nature of the friendship something Brick vehemently denies As is typical of Williams work thelay s comic elements are unsettling than funny the characters surreal sketches of social types than realistic Yolanda's Genius personalities The humor works better on stage but a few moving scenes make the drama worth checking out Cat on a Hot Tin Roof written by one of the greatest Americanlaywrights Tennessee Williams debuted in 1955 with its Fettan portrait of rich southerner Big Daddy Big Mama and two brothers sort of vying for for their dying father s inheritance Biff a former successful footballlayer is now an alcoholic and not sleeping with his lovely wife Maggie the Cat I saw the film version with Paul Newman and Liz Taylor many years ago and it always stayed with me I listened to a version of this Die Kunst Des Zeichnens: Die grosse Zeichenschule: Praxisorientiert und gut erklärt play read by another great Americanlaywright Edward Albee who reads two different last acts of the lay one highlighting Maggie the title Cat on a Hot Tin Roof character a bit including some thoughts about theater by Williams and a reflection on a roduction of the The Villain: The Life of Don Whillans play Albee had seen on Broadway directed by Elia KazanBrick suggestive for me of Rabbit Angstrom in Rabbit Run is a former athlete lost in theast lost in the bottle Big Daddy What makes you so restless have you got ants in your britchesBrick Yes sirBig Daddy WhyBrick Something Hasn t Happened Big Daddy Yeah What Is ThatBrick Sadly The thatBrick sadly the Big Daddy Did you say the clickBrick Yes clickBig Daddy What clickBrick A click that I get in my head that makes me eacefulBig Daddy I sure in hell don t know what you re talking about but it disturbs meBrick It s just a mechanical thingBig Daddy What is a mechanical thingBrick This click that I get in my head that makes me eaceful I got to drink till I get it Big Daddy s facing death so he confronts his lost son Brick and as Williams says about the confrontation When something is festering in your memory or your imagination laws of silence don t work it s just like shutting a door and locking it on a house on fire in hope of forgetting that the house is burning But not facing a fire doesn t ut it out Silence about a thing just magnifies it It grows and festers in silence becomes malignant The big dramatic truth telling showdown is owerful with terrific dialogue stripping off the illusions they have all lived by all their lives I listened to this lay when I was in my car and finished it there and when I came home I read the hysical copy of Death of a Salesman In Cat Big Daddy shows he knows who he is and he tries to save Brick in Death Biff shows he knows who he is and he tries to save Willie To read these two lays within the same 24 hours was just like going from one explosion to another two great cherry bombs of American theater Death. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof first heated up Broadway in 1955 with its gothic American story of brothers vying for their dying father’s inheritance amid a whirlwind of sexual. ,

Schulwissen, neu aufpoliert preferred to read it myself but that option was not available and listening to alay seemed to make sense Throughout the reading I kept silently substituting the voices of Paul Newman Liz Taylor and Burl Ives and wanting to download the extraordinary movie and watch it insteadThis is a complex lay about human emotions the lies we tell ourselves and others and how closely aligned love and hate can be like two heads on a Roman coin For a character who has recious little dialogue Brick Politt makes a big impression but much is missing when you cannot Ity untethered in the erson of Maggie the Cat The lay also daringly showcased the burden of sexuality repressed in the agony of her husband Brick Pollitt In spite of ,
Ee facial expressions and have to imagine movementsfor much of what Brick tells us is told with his body and his face Maggie the Cat is on the other hand a woman who expresses much of what she feels verbally so she lays a bit better in audio alone No one brings a Southern household alive uite like Tennessee Williams He gets to the edge beneath the Southern drawl and honey can drip from his women while they exude oison from their ores Big men like Big Daddy were once common in Southern society and it almost feels a shame to say you robably will not find such men in the South today Williams tackles the serious issue of homosexuality in this classic and does so in a way that tells you both where the ublic s stood in the 1950s and foreshadows a surprisingly tolerant view beneath the surface i thought him retty brave to surface I thought him retty brave to on the subject and Nebular Sammelband 5 -
