4th Annual Tennessee Williams Festival: A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur
Four eccentric and unforgettable women fry chicken, plan a picnic to Creve Coeur Lake, and cope with loneliness and lost dreams in an efficiency apartment on Enright Avenue in the Central West End circa the mid-1930s. Williams gives us more laughs than usual, but no less poetry or poignancy.
Williams believed that growing up in St. Louis was essential to the shape of his work. A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur is one of his few plays set here, and was the inspiration behind TV’s “The Golden Girls.” Featuring an all-female cast, A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur will be directed by Kari Ely.
