"A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur", by renowned playwright Tennessee Williams (directed for Milnerton Players by Judith Herbig) runs at the Milnerton Playhouse from 26 July until 3 August.
It is a warm June morning in the West End of St. Louis in the mid-1930s - a lovely Sunday for a picnic at Creve Coeur Lake. This delightful play, featuring four of Williams' most engaging female characters, skilfully explores, with comic irony and great tenderness, the need for human connection as well as the inevitable compromises one must make to get through 'the long run of life'.
This light comedy focuses on four friends striving for their independence. Dorothea, looking for her Prince Charming, the good-hearted hard-of-hearing Bodey, Sophie Gluck, a German immigrant manic-depressive and Helena, Dorothea’s haughty colleague. Will Dorothea succeed?
Bookings are open on the Milnerton Players' website or by telephone on 082 267 1061.
Reviewing the play in the New York Post, Clive Barnes said, "This is not your usual Tennessee tourist trip" and added, "it is sweet, honest, compassionate, different and totally enjoyable".
