Sienna Miller stars in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof at the Apollo Theatre
British/American actress Sienna Miller will lead the cast in Tennessee Williams’ iconic play, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, at the Apollo Theatre in London.
Miller will play the sizzling Southern wild cat married to Brick: a handsome, former all-American football player who is unable to satisfy his her needs.
Set on a steamy night in Mississippi. As the family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday and impending death, Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage.
A searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival, Cat on A Hot Tin Roof is a twentieth century masterpiece.
Sienna Miller was last on stage in the West End as Patricia in Flare Path at the Haymarket Theatre and was previously seen at Wyndham’s Theatre as Celia in As You Like It. Her New York theatre credits include After Miss Julie, Cabaret, Independence and Cigarettes and Chocolate.
Sienna’s many film credits include Live by Night, Mississippi Grind, Layer Cake, Alfie, Casanova, Factory Girl, American Sniper, Foxcatcher, The Edge of Love, G.I. Joe, Yellow and the forthcoming The Lost City of Z. On television her credits include The Girl, Bedtime and Keen Eddie. Sienna trained at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York.
Cat on A Hot Tin Roof is directed by Benedict Andrews (A Street Car Named Desire, Young Vic) and presented in the West End by the Young Vic.
Cat on A Hot Tin Roof will run from 13 July 2017 until 7 October 2017 at the Apollo Theatre.
