By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Jeffrey Hoffman

Boxcar Theatre

Boxcar Playhouse, San Francisco, California

with Lauren Doucette, Brian Jansen, Suzan Kendall, Peter Matthews, Michael Moerman, Andy Strong, and Seth Thygesen

"Boxcar Theatre has distilled one essence of a classic American play in their abbreviated version of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."
- Albert Goodwyn, San Francisco Examiner

"Director Jeffrey Hoffman gets enjoyable performances all around...and his staging, set in the round in knee- and should-rubbing proximity to the audience, invites a rare sense of intimacy."
- Robert Avila, San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Boxcar Theatre delivers something more conceptually adventurous...you can't fault Hoffman for lack of invention, up to and including the final scene."
- Chris Jensen, San Francisco Weekly

"The most intimate performance I have seen of the play...The final scene about the inheritance of the plantation is well done...Brian Jansen as Gooper, Hannah Knapp as Mae, and Andy Strong as Doc Baugh give good performances. "
- Richard Connema, Talkin' Broadway
