Lola (S. Epatha 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? S. Epatha Merkerson stars in this new production of William Inge's true American classic, an absorbing tale of lost hopes and unfulfilled promise, told with unflinching honesty and heartbreaking power.
