The whole family together lovingly on this momentous day.
BIG MAMA & DADDY
Big Mama could not be happier; her two sons, their wives, and 5 grandchildren have all come to the house to celebrate the 65th birthday of her husband
BRICK & MAGGIE
The happy couple - Brick and Maggie Pollitt. No child yet, but surely they'll have one soon and make Big Daddy ever so happy.
Maggie "the cat" loves attention; but nothing more than the attention of her distant husband Brick. Desperate for a baby to ensure their inheritance, Maggie must seduce her husband, and keep their failing marriage a secret from the prying eyes of the family.
Former football player Brick has recently quit his job in sports announcing, following the death of his best friend Skipper. You're most likely to find Brick with a glass of his favourite liquor, Echo Spring.
GOOPER & MAE
Bitter at his father's constant disapproval, Gooper has become one of the top lawyers in the state. With an idyllic family and glittering career, has he proven himself worthy of inheriting the farm when his father dies?
His wife, Mae, loves to gossip - mostly about her sister-in-law, Maggie. A veritable baby-making machine, she's pregnant with her sixth child, and is intent on letting the whole world know how happy she and her husband are.
Big Daddy Pollitt is the owner of one of the biggest plantations on the Mississippi Delta. Married to a woman he doesn't love, and suffering from a mysterious condition he's told is "nothing but a spastic colon", Big Daddy is sick of the lies kept, and secrets spreading throughout his household
Looks like Brick might have had just a bit too much to drink....
