The rarely performed Tennessee Williams’ play A Lovely Sunday for Creve Couer is to open the Autumn Season at The Print Room at The Coronet.
One of the greatest American playwrights of the last century and best known for plays including A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, and The Glass Menagerie, this play is one of Williams’ rarer plays.
It’s Sunday morning in early June, 1930s St Louis. In a sweltering apartment, as Dorothea completes her rigorous daily exercise regime, Bodey is in the kitchen, frying chicken for a picnic at Creve Coeur Lake. Upstairs neighbour Mrs Gluck has depression so bad she can’t even make coffee, and now Dorothea’s spinster colleague Helena arrives with the news that she’s found a lovely new apartment for them to share. But Dorothea’s mind is elsewhere, she is hoping for a call from the man of her dreams…
Casting will include Debbie Chazen as Bodey, Hermione Gulliford as Helena, Laura Rogers as Dorothea and Julia Watson as Miss Gluck. The production will be directed by Michael Oakley, designed by Fotini Dimou, lighting design by David Plater, and sound design by Max Pappenheim.
A Lovely Sunday For Creve Coeur will be presented at The Coronet from 12 September to 7th October 2016.
