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.Performances begin on September 14 and run through October 21, 2018, with opening night on September 23 at Theatre at the St. Clement's (423 West 46th St). A fitting venue for this production, St. Clement’s was founded by Tennessee William’s cousin, Reverend Sidney Lanier.

Open: 09/12/18- Close: 09/22/18 Magdalena
Theaterlab presents the world premiere of MAGDALENA, an intimate multimedia solo performance by the award-winning filmmaker and a Guggenheim Fellow Gabri Christa. This work is a deeply personal account of experiencing Christa’s Dutch mother’s dementia, and an effort to piece together her past, marked by struggles with war, interracial marriage and unconventional motherhood. Born to a modest Dutch family, Magdalena survived the bombing of her hometown of Rotterdam during WWII and eventually married a middle-class Black man from the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao. When her memories started to fade, Christa took on the task of rebuilding her mother’s life through stories, dance, and images.

Open: 09/19/18- Close: 10/07/18 YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT
You Wouldn’t Expect unfolds at a local Eugenics office in 1960’s North Carolina where we see the cat-and-mouse workings of the two women who work there.  Here, four African-American woman are pressured to be sterilized, part of a racist practice sanctioned by our government for over a decade.  We are also brought to the squalid shack of a pedophile father angling to get his daughter “fixed” so that he won’t have to deal with outcome of his actions, the offspring. The North Carolina Board enabled county departments of public welfare to petition the Board to sterilize their clients. The majority of these sterilizations were coerced, and academic sources have observed that this was not only an ableist and classist project but also a racist one.
