'Methuen Drama's series...is consistently setting a high standard for a specialized market...(this) new release of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, edited by Philip C. Kolin, is a particularly representative example of what is best about Methuen's series.' Kolin...takes full advantage of Methuen's stylistic template for the series, with excellent supporting sections...' Students and teachers, not to mention theatrical practitioners, will find much to value in this well-constructed and moderately priced edition. With any luck, Methuen will continue to add titles to this series edited by scholars of Kolin's calibre.' James Fisher, Broadside, June 2011
