Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play focuses on a troubled Southern family and the discord over their dying father's millions. Wealthy plantation owner Big Daddy Pollitt is celebrating his 65th birthday with his family, including his wife Big Mama, his two sons, Brick and Gooper and their wives. He has cancer, but a doctor has for the sake of the day declared it in remission. Seemingly perfect son Gooper and his wife, Mae have several children and are anxiously expecting to inherit Daddy's millions. By contrast, Big Daddy's "favorite," Brick, is a has-been football star who's taken to drinking his days away since the suicide of his "best friend" a year earlier. He resents his wife, Maggie, because he believes that she had an affair with his deceased friend. As a result, he refuses to sleep with her, although she remains devoted to him and as a woman who saw the dire effects of poverty on her family, and is fighting to secure Brick's and her future. Since Brick and Maggie have failed to produce any grandchildren, Big Daddy is inclined to leave his estate to Gooper, but Maggie attempts to prevent that by telling him that she is pregnant. Big Daddy knows better, yet he recognizes that Maggie loves Brick so much that she would be willing to do anything for him. Although Brick is self-destructive and resentful, unable to come to terms with his losses, it takes Big Daddy's recognition of his own mortality to make Brick change his perspective. Brick's struggle with his sexual identity, and the nature of his relationship with his "friend," along with the struggle for security in a dance with life and death for each character, unfolds.
