2013-2014 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Sweet Bird of Youth - Tennessee Williams
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 21/2/2014
This is one of the most famous and beloved plays of Tennessee Williams. The young and ambitious Chance Wayne returns to the city where he was born, along with the faded former movie star Alexandra Del Lago. Two vain people meet at the most marginal point in their lives, leaning on each other in their attempt to smother their feelings, fears, and their panic before Time, which rolls on and leaves its mark not only on their faces but also on their souls... Two lost souls who drown themselves in alcohol, debauchery, and artificial paradises... who dream of Hollywood, fame, and power, and play their last card. However, landing in a cruel and violent reality leaves them suspended within their own illusions. Two people alone, left to their fates and to despair, to loss of paradise and self-exile...
