2015 Season


June 18 – August 30, 2015

Written by: William Inge
Directed by: Cameron Watson

Powerful, moving, and ripe for revival, Inge’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama is not simply a breezy summer romance. Set in small town Kansas, this is a sexy world, dangerous and cruel, where residents keep each other in their place while longing to break free.
