"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", Stratford Festival, Stratford, ON

From Stratford Festival ~ Though childless himself, aging football hero Brick Pollitt is clearly the favourite son and potential heir of dying plantation owner Big Daddy. But why does Brick seek oblivion in alcohol, and why has he neglected his beautiful and passionate wife, Margaret - driving her, on one fateful occasion, into the arms of his best friend?

We enjoyed this play. It's three hours with two 15 minute intermissions and has some fairly well-known Canadian actors.

We had cocktails at a couple local pubs before and after the play. Supper was at Sid's Sports Bar (across from the Avon Theatre). The food was good and the price was right (half price appetizers). Great train ride down and back.

We can't wait for next year's season!
