Drawing: Catrin Stewart in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Catrin Stewart

Appropriately named Welsh actress Catrin Stewart is currently playing the ‘cat’, Maggie in Tennessee William’s CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF at the Theatr Clwyd  in northeast Wales. Known to TV viewers for her roles as Emma in the comedy drama STELLA, Jenny Flint in DR WHO and Lily in MISFITS, Catrin was last seen on the London stage as the besotted Anya in Chekhov’s THE CHERRY ORCHARD at the Young Vic in late 2014.

The Telegraph’s Chris Bennion, in his four star review described Catrin’s performance as  Maggie as “…one tin roof absolutely dominated by its Cat. Catrin Stewart is a superb, captivating Maggie, stealing in scenes in which she doesn’t speak. It’s a delightfully nuanced performance, with real depth that manages to catch Maggie the Cat’s frustration, heartbreak, lust, scheming, bitterness, desperation and wit-often with a single sentence.”

I sent this drawing to Catrin at the intimate hillside theatre and she returned it, signed with a kind dedication.
