Colm Meaney will join Sienna Miller and Jack O’Connell in the Young Vic production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
Meaney will play family patriarch ‘Big Daddy’ in Tennessee Williams’ intense Pulitzer Prize-winning drama set in the deep South at the turn of the Twentieth Century.
Miller and O’Connell play husband and wife, trying to hide the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage.
Meaney is best known for his long-running role as ‘Chief Miles O’Brien’ in the hit series Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
He was last on stage in London in Moon for the Misbegooten at the Old Vic with Kevin Spacey, which subsequently transferred to Broadway. Meaney’s extensive theatre credits include Breaking the Code, The Cider House Rules and Juno and the Paycock.
Directed by Benedict Andrews (A Street Car Named Desire), Cat on A Hot Tin Roof will be the first Young Vic production to debut in the West End.
Cat on A Hot Tin Roof will run from 13 July 2017 until 7 October 2017 at the Apollo Theatre.
