THE SOUTHERN LITERARY TRAIL®
connects southern places in Alabama, Georgia
and Mississippi that inspired great American writers to create
classic fiction and plays. The inspiration continues. Every two
years, the Trail's organizers host Trailfest, the only tri-state
literary festival in the United States with free events, theatrical
performances and heritage tours. Trailfest returns in 2015.
The Shaw Festival Theatre at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada,
presents "A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur" by Tennessee Williams
through October 11, 2014
to a tradition of reviving classic plays, including the works of
writers from the American South, the Shaw Festival presents "A
Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur," a rarely produced play by Tennessee
Williams, through October 11, 2014. Directed by Blair Williams at
the Shaw Festival, an internationally acclaimed theatre in Ontario
just north of the United States, "Creve Coeur" originally opened in
New York City on January 10, 1979, at the renowned Hudson Guild
Theatre after its debut performances during the Spoleto Festival in
Charleston, South Carolina. The lead character Dorothea Gallaway
must confront disappointing news about a man she wished to marry as her roommate Bodey prepares for
a picnic at Creve Coeur Park. For more photos from the show and the
Shaw Festival, visit the Trail's

mystery and their "luminosity."
