The company that brought you the OBIE-award winning revival of The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, returns to William Inge, presenting two of his greatest plays in rotating repertory: Picnic and Come Back, Little Sheba. These plays in rotating repertory offer audiences a rare opportunity to experience back-to-back masterpieces that expose what Elia Kazan termed the "quiet terror" of Inge's world. 

In an old and cluttered house in the middle west in their middle age, a couple lives one day to the next: Lola, breathless with fear of silence and solitude, and Doc a recovering alcoholic. Into their tired lives comes Marie, their boarder, so flush with the riches of her youth that they can no longer deny how they spent their own. Their fragile acceptance of their own stifling reality is suddenly and brutally tested as Inge mercilessly exposes the pain and regret of the past that can be unmasked by the mere presence of youth and possibility of the future. Inge's famous play Come Back, Little Sheba, explores the endless and inevitable disappointments of the ever-seductive American promise through sex, joy, doubt, addiction, and rage.
