A panel discussion with Tony Award-nominated director Austin Pendleton and Bob Hupp of the Arkansas Repertory Theatre on the production of “A Loss of Roses,” a little-known William Inge masterpiece that tells the story of two women struggling to make their lives bearable in a small Kansas town. Penned in the intimate style of Tennessee Williams, who was Inge’s mentor, “A Loss of Roses” is a bittersweet romance about the loss of innocence which garnered a young Warren Beatty a Tony Award nomination in the 1959 Broadway production.
