The Print Room at the Coronet will be presenting rarely seen Tennessee Williams play A Lovely Sunday for Creve from the 12th September until the 7th October.
Opening the Autumn season, the production is directed by Michael Oakley and stars Debbie Chazen as Bodey, Hermione Gulliford as Helena, Laura Rogers as Dorothea and Julia Watson as Miss Gluck.
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…
Tennessee Williams is considered to be one of the greatest American playwrights of the last century, having written A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Glass Menagerie.
The production will feature designs by Fotini Dimou, lighting design byDavid Plater and sound design by Max Pappenheim.
