Print Room at the Coronet: A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur
Print Room at the Coronet continues its important mission to stage unknown and rarely performed works by major writers. A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur is a wonderful example of Williams’ writing. Savagely funny, at times almost farcical, beneath the surface lies a depiction of the fragility of hope and a tender exploration of loneliness and the need for human connection.
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, hoping for a call from the man of her dreams…
A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur | 12 Sep – 7 Oct
