5 men, 3 women, 4 children
Maggie - The play's cat. Brick's turning from her has caused a loneliness that has made her hard, nervous, and bitchy.
Brick - The favorite son and mourned lover. Brick embodies masculinity. At the same time, Brick has a repressed homosexual desire for his dead friend Skipper.
Big Daddy - Brick’s father. Affectionately dubbed by Maggie as an old-fashioned "Mississippi redneck," Daddy is a large, brash, and vulgar plantation millionaire.
Big Mama - Brick’s mother. A flashy woman, Mama is embarrassingly dedicated to a man who despises her and in denial of her husband's disgust. She considers Brick her "only son."
Mae - A mean, agitated wife and mother who schemes with her husband Gooper to secure Big Daddy's estate, using her children as weapons to that end
Gooper - A successful corporate lawyer. Gooper is Daddy's eldest and least favored son. He plots to secure control of the estate.
Reverend Tooker - A tactless, opportunistic, and hypocritical guest at Big Daddy's birthday party.
Doctor Baugh - The sober Baugh is Daddy's physician.
The Children - Mae and Gooper's children. They intermittently interrupt the action on-stage. Under Mae's direction, they offer up a burlesque image of love and devotion.
