Archives - A Lovely Sunday for Crêve Coeur

by Tennessee Williams

Directed by Jack Wood

Friday 28th January – Saturday 5th February 1994 in the Auditorium

It is a lovely Sunday for a picnic at Crêve Coeur Lake, St. Louis, in the ’30s. One of Tennessee Williams’ forever hopeful Southern belles is waiting for a ’phone call from the man she expects to fulfil her deferred hopes of matrimony…

Focussing on one morning and one encounter of four women, Williams explores with great tenderness, and extremely funny dialogue, the meaning of loneliness and the need for human connection.

One of Williams’ last plays — performed only four years before he died — Crêve Coeur is also one of his most unusual, and certainly his funniest.
