Two lead actors wanted for Tennessee Williams play

Burgess Hill Theatre Club are performing A Cat on A Hot Tin Roof from October 16 to 19.

The play’s production team won three awards and received nine nominations at last year’s Brighton & Hove Drama Awards for the critically acclaimed Streetcar Named Desire.

This new production stars Pollyanna Hollebon in the lead role of Maggie. Pollyanna scooped Best Actress at last year’s awards.

A Cat on A Hot Tin Roof revolves around a wealthy dysfunctional family in 1950s Mississippi. The action takes place over one evening as the family wait to celebrate Big Daddy Pollitt’s birthday.

The club are still looking for the two lead male roles. The first is Maggie’s husband Brick, an alcoholic ex-sports star who cannot stand being in the same room as his wife. Playing age is 27-35. A very good American accent is required.

The second part is Big Daddy, a Patriarch of the old school. Playing age is 55-70. Again, a good accent is required and both actors will need to be experienced.
