Embellishing the Tennessee Williams classic “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” sounds like risky business. But director Elizabeth Falk says, “It’s all there in the play.”
Her production runs through Sept. 22 at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater, before moving to the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival for four performances Sept. 27-29. And it opens with a wordless prologue of her creation, starring two characters often mentioned in the text but never before seen: the original owners of the plantation inhabited by familiar characters Big Daddy and Big Mama, Maggie and Brick.
