Sweet Bird of Youth (January 9-25, 2003)

A Drama by Tennessee Williams

“Once again, a bolt of thunder has been hurled by Williams, and the theatre reverberates to its roar!”

The Princess, an aging motion picture actress in flight from her latest screen disaster, picks up Chance Wayne, a young hustler. Taking advantage of her drunkenness, and his own youth and good looks he lures her to the Southern town of his birth to see a young girl with whom he has had an affair and still loves. He hopes to use the Princess to promote a movie career for himself and his girl. What Chance does not know is that he has unwittingly infected the girl. Boss Finley, political despot and father of the girl, and his sadistic son and toadies lay in wait for his return and their revenge. Chance is deserted by his patroness, and far worse, his youth!
