6 FIERY DRAMA
Sienna Miller steps onto the West End stage in July’s new production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams. Famous as a 1958 film with Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman, this drama fizzes with sexual tension as the secrets and lies of a Mississippi family are exposed. Miller plays “Maggie the Cat” whilst her husband, Brick, is played by Jack O’ Connell, winner of the Bafta EE 2015 Rising Star award. It’s a busy summer for O’connell, for August sees him on film in the historical romance, Tulip Fever, too.
