Sweet Bird of Youth
  • Play
  • "Marianne Elliott directs Kim Cattrall as a fading Hollywood legend ravaged by the bitterness of failure and despair, in Tennessee Williams's powerful and poetic, Sweet Bird of Youth.

    Fleeing the disastrous premiere of her comeback film, Alexandra Del Lago [Cattrall] travels incognito as The Princess Kosmonopolis seeking refuge in drink, drugs and the arms of Chance Wayne, an idealistic young dreamer turned gigiolo and hellbent on achieving his own movie stardom. A trip to Chance's hometown in a bid to win back his childhood sweetheart sees their relationship of convenience unravel in Williams's vivid and haunting portrait of the destruction of dreams."

    A co-production with Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer.
