About This Show

S. Epatha Merkerson reprises her acclaimed Los Angeles performance as Lola in William Inge’s classic drama Come Back, Little Sheba. Michael Pressman directs.

Lola (Merkerson) is a faded beauty queen trapped in a lonely marriage to Doc, a recovering alcoholic on the brink of relapse. When a pretty young woman becomes a boarder in their cluttered Midwest home, their lives are unsettled as unspoken passions rise to the surface. As the emptiness of their marriage is laid bare, can they find their way back to each other or will they be undone?
