Description On a steamy summer's night on a Mississippi plantation, Big Daddy's family celebrate his sixty-fifth birthday. It's a tense occasion. Big Daddy's hard and unforgiving love has scarred his two sons, especially his favourite, Brick. Holding tight to something he cannot forget yet dare not mention, Brick wallows in booze and recrimination, thwarting the desires of his wife Maggie. But will the revelation that Big Daddy is dying set Brick and Maggie free?
