Description

Shattered Globe Theatre opens its 16th season with an Equity production of William Inge’s 1950 drama “Come Back, Little Sheba.” Twenty years after an unintended pregnancy forced the Delaneys to abandon their individual ambitions and enter into a loveless marriage, Doc, a recovering alcoholic, and Lola, his affection-starved wife, have settled into a numb existence that enables them to coexist from one day to the next.  But when a vibrant young college student rents a room from the couple, their home is suddenly inhabited by the ghosts of their own failings – Doc’s professional disappointments, Lola’s challenges as a wife, and the shared problems of their marriage.  David Cromer (“Orson’s Shadow,” “The Cider House Rules”) directs.
