This stunning theater piece features character Emma Hauck who 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.
