The Rep's A Loss of Roses
The Rep's A Loss of Roses

Start Date: Jun. 20, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM

A Loss of Roses Written by William Inge June 13, 2012 - July 01, 2012 Closing out The Rep’s season is a very special treat by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Picnic and Bus Stop. A Loss of Roses, a little-known William Inge masterpiece, bravely tells the story of two women struggling to make their lives bearable in a small Kansas town. Helen is a devout widow who cherishes the memory of her heroic husband above all else, even as her grown son, Kenny, struggles to fill his shoes and win his mother’s love. Lila is a beautiful but emotionally insecure actress who arrives on their doorstep without a job or direction, but with a lifetime of baggage. When Lila moves in, a love triangle is created that can only end in heartbreak when someone must break free. Penned in the intimate style of Tennessee Williams (who was his mentor), but with William Inge’s graceful insight into the lives of broken families, A Loss of Roses is a bittersweet romance about the loss of innocence which garnered a young Warren Beatty a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actor in the 1959 Broadway production. Join us as we unearth a rare American classic and make history right here in Arkansas.
