Jacky Wardell returns to the Essex Theatre Company stage as Bodey and Diana Lawrence as Dorothea in Tennessee Williams’ comic drama, A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur, opening at the Masonic Lodge in Essex, NY, with a gala, “Saint Louis Blues,” at 5:30 pm on Friday, August 14, show at 7 pm.
Roomates Bodey and Dotty deal with unexpected Sunday morning visitor Helena Brookmire, played by Brianna Wardell, who wants to wrest Dotty away from her efficiency apartment in mid-1930’s St. Louis for a more upscale—and much more expensive—dwelling. The battle between Bodey and Helena increases in intensity with the arrival of Miss Gluck from upstairs, played by Kathy Poppino, who is suffering from severe depression after the death of her mother a week earlier. Themes of romance, deception and self-deception, living through others, and addiction are explored in this later piece by Mr. Williams.
