Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof explores the complex family relationships of the wealthy cotton tycoon Big Daddy Pollitt. “Cat” embodies the recurring theme of mendacity, especially relative to bowing to the complicated rules of social conduct in Southern society and culture. The recurring line “Wouldn’t it be funny if it was true?,” in response to proclamations of love, says much about the human fascination with “love” and the uncertainty that surrounds it.
