A Loss of Roses, the 1959 play by William Inge, begins performances Nov. 12 at the Irish Arts Center in NY, with opening night slated for Nov. 14. The play was not a hit in its initial Broadway outing and is far less frequently performed than Inge's Picnic and Bus Stop.
Loss of Roses is set in Kansas during the Depression and revolves around an unemployed tent-show actress who seeks refuge in the home of an old friend.
The cast includes Larimore Hampton, Eric Williams, Joan K. Wooters, Sean Dougherty, Richard Gustafson, Ruth Kulerman, and Paul Sparks. The director is Gerald Cosgrove. The show is being produced by The Play Room and runs through Nov. 30 at The Irish Arts Center, 553 W. 51st St., NY. For tickets, call (212) 279 4200.
