William Inge’s classic American masterwork written in 1949 follows a few days in the lives of Doc and Lola Delaney married to each other for over twenty years, each scarred by loss and disillusionment. When the couple takes in Marie, a young college student as a boarder, one can sense as tensions mount amidst the interplay of these three people ,the ticking time bomb in the background.
Extended Broadway run and Tony Award winner.(1950)

Come Back, Little Sheba now running at The Stagecrafters grips your attention. Nancy Bennett is superb as Lola.Husband Doc…played with a sure hand by Rusty Flounders.”
