Kim Cattrall stars in Tennessee Williams's powerful and poetic play directed by Marianne Elliott.

Cattrall plays fading Hollywood legend Alexandra Del Lago, ravaged by the bitterness of failure and despair.

Fleeing the disastrous premiere of her comeback film, she travels incognito as The Princess Kosmonopolis seeking refuge in drink and drugs and the arms of Chance Wayne, an idealistic young dreamer turned gigolo and hellbent on achieving his own movie stardom

A trip to Chance's hometown in a bid to win back his childhood sweetheart sees their relationship of convenience unravel in Williams's vivid and haunting portrait of the destruction of dreams.
