La Femme Theatre Productions has announced that it will present a revival of Tennessee Williams's A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur, directed by Austin Pendleton. Performances begin on September 14 and run through October 21, with opening night set for September 23 at Theatre at the St. Clement's.

In Williams's unique tragicomedy, A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur, four women in Depression-era St. Louis live and work together in a valiant effort to stave off loneliness and despair. Along the way, they uncover false idols — and maybe even themselves.

The cast includes Tony Award nominee Kristine Nielsen (Present Laughter), Drama Desk Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Annette O'Toole (Southern Comfort, Smallville), Jean Lichty (The Traveling Lady), and Polly McKie (The Home Place).

The creative team includes Harry Feiner (set and lighting designer), Beth Goldenberg (costume designer), Leah Loukas (wig and hair design), Carrie Mossman (prop designer), Amy Stoller (dialect designer and dramaturg), Ron Piretti (fight director), Stephanie Klapper (casting director), Gary Levinson (production manager), Marci Skolnik (production stage manager), and Lisa Dozier King (general manager).
