Sweet Bird of Youth - Tennessee Williams


The very title of Sweet Bird of Youth is one of ironic pity. The two chief characters - a raddled has-been actress from Hollywood, seeking to forget her present in drugs and sex, and her still handsome masseur-gigolo, who has brought her to his hometown in the South, believing that through her money and faded glamour his gaudy illusions may yet come true - are the reverse side of the American dream of youth. Yet as they work out their fate amid violence and horror, there is nevertheless a note of compassion for the damned.
