Play reading of William Inge’s Come Back Little Sheba at Center Playhouse

Center Players Dessert Theater will present a dramatic play reading of William Inge’s Come Back Little Sheba at Center Playhouse, 35 South St, in downtown Freehold, NJ, on Tuesday, Sept. 25th at 7pm

This story of marital frustration focuses on characters Doc and Lola, their indiscreet affair, unintended pregnancy and subsequent marriage, during which Doc gave up his medical studies, forfeited his future and settled down to a life of quiet desperation. A recovering alcoholic, Doc's sobriety is tested when Marie, a young college student, becomes their boarder, bringing new life and long-dormant hostilities to the surface of Doc and Lola's troubled marriage. This reading is directed by Dave McGrath and features local actors: Gina Shuster, Kristen Pellizzi, Roni Banerjee, Ed Estevez, Antje Weymann, Derek Alberti, Matthew Gochamn, Frank Leonhardt and Robert Goodwin. 

Center Players’ Book in Hand play reading series allows audiences to be exposed to plays in an informal setting while also allowing writers to experience audience reaction to their work. A question and answer and talk-back session will follow the reading. Admission is free, but a $5 donation is requested. More information is available online at or by calling 732-462-9093. 

Celebrating its 18th season at Center Playhouse, Center Players is a respected, award-winning organization, presenting high quality, engaging productions featuring local talent in historic downtown Freehold. In addition to their signature plays, the group also sponsors free play reading events and offers dinner and theater packages with several local restaurants.
