WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
William Inge's classic American masterwork, written in 1949, follows a few days in the lives of the Delaneys, Doc and Lola, married to each other for over 20 years, each scarred by loss and disillusionment. Their marriage is about to face yet another challenge when the couple takes in Marie, a young college student, as a boarder. As tensions mount amidst the interplay of these three people, one can literally sense the time bomb ticking in the background. A sensitive and poignant story rendered in a simple but powerful way previously unknown in American theater.
