Event Information

In this outrageously entertaining and tender comedy from writer/director Todd Stephens (Edge of Seventeen), retired hairdresser Pat Pitsenbarger (legendary actor Udo Kier) escapes his small-town nursing home after learning of his former client’s dying wish for him to style her final hairdo.

Soon, Pat embarks on an odyssey to confront the ghosts of his past, rediscovering his sparkle along the way and being fabulous while doing so. Swan Song is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering oneself, and still looking gorgeous even at death.
