Chemainus Theatre Presents
In the mid-1930s, the lives of four striking women are drawn together in a St. Louis apartment building. Sharing a need and struggle to find their identity. They must sort through delusions of love, realities of single womanhood, pressures of society, and the power of compassion.
This must be described, with pleasant surprise, as a comedy, is Dorothea (Caitlin O’Connell), a schoolteacher and “woman of a certain age.” “Dottie” creates a Prince Charming out of a cad, filling her hours with a fantasy of silver-screen proportions. But that is where the two characters’ similarities end. Starry-eyed and wrapped in a luxuriant Southern dialect to complement her tangerine lingerie, O’Connell makes a spell-binding protagonist. She moves easily between the near-farcical and tragicomic elements of the story, giving full range to Williams’ imaginative intrigues.
Come and enjoy the story of these women.
