Much like his contemporaries Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams, Inge focused on the tension of family life, the corruption of the American dream and the plight of the common man. This production, directed by John Sadowsky, stars Maria Lakkala and Gerald Riley.

The food of Ethiopia is popular for its intriguing spices, spongy bread and lack of utensils. Our neighbor to the south, Washington, D.C. , is justly celebrated for having one of the country's best Ethiopian food scenes. Here in Baltimore, our options are more limited, and mostly concentrated in the Mount Vernon area. Sheba Restaurant, which opened last year in Canton, is a welcome addition to Baltimore's list, bringing good Ethiopian food and friendly, though not always attentive, service to a new part of the city.

William Inge's "Come Back, Little Sheba" is seldom revived anymore because of its awkward sentimentality. Inge ended not just one but two acts with the maudlin sight of a lonely middle-aged woman calling plaintively for a long-lost dog: "Come back, little Sheba!" That phrase has been parodied a great deal in the 50 years since Inge wrote the play. It's unfortunate that this drama has been reduced to a punch line, for there is a good deal of power to Inge's tale of alcoholism and sexual repression.

" The eight-year-old Towson boy with wire-rimmed glasses nearly cried when, after waiting in line for hours, he finally saw in person the guy he's seen so many times on TV — the guy he hopes can get his puppy Molly to stop biting. "I think [Millan] impresses him a lot," said Vinny's mother, Mona Ragone.

John Sadowsky and Maria Lakkala co-founded the Howard County-based Director's Choice Theater Company two years ago because, Sadowsky says, "We wanted to be the group that produced plays by local playwrights." But the company has also developed an interest in classic American plays, which explains its current offering, William Inge's "Come Back, Little Sheba" of 1950. The drama, which features Lakkala in the leading role of Lola, the lonely wife of a domineering, repressive alcoholic, is being co-produced by Director's Choice and Baltimore's Spotlighters Theatre.
