Plays normalize dramatic monologues in everyday discourse, from telling a friend how much they mean to you to expressing your dire need for someone to pass the mashed potatoes. Get dramatically inspired with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two general-admission tickets to the 2011 season-opening production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Throughline Theatre Company at the Seton Center in Brookline (up to a $20 value).

- Thursday, June 16 at 8 p.m.
- Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m.
- Saturday, June 18 at 5:30 p.m.
Established by a group of seven theatrically dedicated friends, the recently inaugurated Throughline Theatre Company stages ambitious productions of both famed and upcoming works within Seton Center’s sizeable 300-seat theater. Tennessee Williams’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof stretches its tangible drama across the main stage, giving theatergoers and feline apologists an in-depth glimpse into a highfalutin Southern family’s complicated goings-on. Set at the ailing patriarch’s birthday party, the play exposes the conniving nature of the family members while exploring the need for more breathable roofing material. While not included in today’s Groupon, a ticketed after-party celebrating Elizabeth Taylor’s life and contributions will follow the June 11 performance.
