Annette O'Toole and Kristine Nielsen Preview A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur

Jean Lichty and Polly McKie also star in the Tennessee Williams drama.

The cast of Tennessee Williams's A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur met the press at their rehearsal studio on August 14. Directed by Austin Pendleton, the drama is presented by La Femme Theatre Productions, with performances running September 14-October 21 at the Theatre at the St. Clement's.

In Williams's unique tragicomedy, 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.
