LAMB to present play by Sioux Cityan

SIOUX CITY — LAMB Arts Regional Theatre will be presenting “Back Cover,” a play written by Emily Hageman, a Sioux Cityan, for an eight-performance run, beginning Friday.

“Back Cover” revolves around Madison, whose parents’ recent divorce forced her to move to New York City — a place that she hates.

Through an incredible coincidence, Madison finds a shoebox full of letters belonging to a young woman named Jessica. A connection is formed that will change Madison’s life forever in this play directed by Diana Guhin Wooley.

Performances will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday, with a 1:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday. The show will continue at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11, 12 and 13, with a matinee at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 14.
