Armour Street Theatre
In a plantation house, a family celebrates the birthday of Big Daddy. The mood is somber because a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed/sins of the past/ desperate hopes for the future spar with one another as they learn that Big Daddy is dying. Maggie, Big Daddy's daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she's finally become pregnant by Big Daddy's favorite son, Brick, but Brick won't cooperate in Maggie's plans & prefers to stay in a mild alcoholic haze. Maggie has her interests at heart in wanting to become pregnant but she also wants to make amends to Brick for an error in judgment that nearly cost their marriage. Swarming around Maggie and Brick are their intrusive, conniving relatives, all eager to see Maggie put in her place & Brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son. By evening's end, Maggie will set things right, & Brick's love for his father will retrieve him from his path of destruction & return him, helplessly, to Maggie's loving arms. Ages 14+
