In Tennessee 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. And, along the way, they uncover false idols -- and maybe even themselves.
Clive Barnes of the New York Post said, "This is not your usual Tennessee tourist trip. But it is sweet, honest, compassionate, different."
