FVCC Theatre Presents “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”

FVCC Theatre will open its 2019-2020 season with the modern classic by Tennessee Williams, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Supposedly Williams’ favorite play, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955 and the Tony Award in 1956, 1975, 1990 and 2004. FVCC’s production will run September 26, 27, 28, and October 3, 4 and 5 with 7 p.m. performances in the campus theatre, located inside the Arts and Technology Building.

“’Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ embraces so much of the human experience, both good and bad: social mores, greed, superficiality, mendacity, decay, sexual desire, repression and death,” FVCC Speech and Theatre Arts Professor Joe Legate said. “But the underlying themes of truth and love keep this play universal. These two powerful forces keep the play unswervingly headed toward an exceptionally satisfying conclusion.”

Due to strong language and adult themes, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is recommended for mature audiences only. Tickets are available online at, at the FVCC Bookstore and at the FVCC Theatre Box Office before each performance. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
