Sweet Bird of Youth starring Kim Cattrall at the Old Vic Theatre
The Old Vic, Waterloo Road, London, SE1 8NB
Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City) and Seth Numrich (Golden Boy) star in Tennessee Williams’s powerful and poetic play Sweet Bird of Youth, directed by Marianne Elliott (War Horse).
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 gigolo 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.
Sweet Bird of Youth starts previews at the Old Vic Theatre on 1 June 2013, running until 31 August 2013.
