Air Force Colonel Kenneth Penmark and his wife, Christine, dote on their pig-tailed daughter, Rhoda -- as does their lonely landlady, Monica Breedlove. But self-centered Rhoda has a secret tendency for selfishness and loves to accumulate gifts, whether given or stolen, in her room. Christine keeps her knowledge of her daughter's darker side to herself, but when a schoolmate of Rhoda's dies mysteriously, her self-deception unravels.

Staged by Reginald Denham, the play opened on Broadway on December 8, 1954, at the 46th Street Theatre in New York City. After five months, the play moved to the Coronet Theatre on 49th Street, and remained there until the final performance on September 27, 1955. The play had run for 334 performances.

The production starred Nancy Kelly (who won the 1955 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play in the role as the mother), Patty McCormack, Eileen Heckart and Henry Jones.

Interest in the play was strong enough that Life magazine ran an extensive story on the production a week before it opened.

The play was shortlisted for the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, but Joseph Pulitzer Jr. pressured the prize jury into presenting it to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof instead.
