Kim Cattrall at The Old Vic this summer!
This summer we look forward to welcoming Kim Cattrall to The Old Vic. Kim will star as a fading Hollywood legend ravaged by the bitterness of failure and despair, in Tennessee Williamss 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 Chances hometown in a bid to win back his childhood sweetheart sees their relationship of convenience unravel in Williamss vivid and haunting portrait of the destruction of dreams.
