    Synopsis: 

    Into a tiny Gulf coast hamlet drifts an improbable couple: the Princess Kosmonopolis, a Hollywood legend fleeing the disastrous premiere of her latest epic, and Chance Wayne, a young actor-turned-gigolo who has brought his new benefactress to his hometown in hopes of reclaiming his former glory. But when a youthful mistake surfaces that threatens Chance's plan, the pair are forced to confront their crumbling dreams. Laced with humor and Williams' "characteristically gorgeous lyricism" (The New York Times), Sweet Bird of Youth is a sensual, haunting theatrical journey that will captivate and seduce you.
