Sweetheart Come by Melissa Leilani Larson directed by Mark Fossen
Runs May 2 – May 19, 2019

Emma Hauck realizes that her husband’s political ambitions are changing him—and their marriage. She finds refuge in her writing, and in the unexpected friendship of a new servant. As both relationships grow more complex, Emma must face difficult truths about herself that she never knew existed. Inspired by a heartbreaking true story, this new play explores the intersection between marriage, illness, and the power of a pencil. A 2016 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference Semifinalist, SWEETHEART COME will receive its world premiere production at PYGmalion Theatre.
