Domestic Drama at the Masque


In the 1950s when Come back little Sheba was written, a child conceived out of wedlock was a disgrace. A “shot-gun marriage” was seen to be the solution to this dilemma. William Inge's play was a daring break-through for the time. It deals honestly with failed hopes and lost dreams.

Come back little Sheba has all the necessary ingredients for a realistic domestic drama: an alcoholic husband and a frumpish wife who adores yet fears him. Into this potentially explosive situation comes a pretty young student as a boarder. To them, she becomes the representation of the daughter they never had.

William Inge's Come back little Sheba is directed by Barrie Howard for the Constantiaberg Theatre Players. It opens at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, on Friday 01 April and runs until Saturday 09 April, excluding Sunday to Wednesday.

Week nights are at 8pm and Saturdays at 2.30 and 6.30 pm. Tickets are R50 for Thursday night and Saturday matinees and R60 for Friday and Saturday nights (Masque Theatre Club members enjoy a R10 discount). To book phone 021 788 1898 (o/h).
