The 1976 play, later interpreted into a movie of the same title, is set in a small town outside of Marfa, Texas, where the 1950's James Dean movie, Giant, was filmed. Although it was written over 40 years ago, the play tackles hard issues that are even more relevant today than when it was first produced. "Come Back to the Five & Dime" is set in a small town dime store, where the Disciples of James Dean gather for their twentieth reunion. While enjoying their reunion, they reminisce with flashbacks to their past. However, the arrival of a stranger unravels a series of confrontations that upset their web of lies, disappointments, and self-delusions.

Featuring Shirley Sayers as Juanita, Deni Scofield as Mona, Toody Lawrence as Sissy, Janine La Forge as Stella Mae, Nicole Shallig as Edna Louise, Michelle Champoux as Joanne, Katie Peters as Mona (then), Tyler Traum as Sissy (then), and Chris Jensen as Joe.

The London Standard hails Come back to the Five & Dime as A challenging piece of theatre. The Gannet Newspapers called the play, A work of amazing dramatic power... ingenious, shocking... funny, brimming with pathos, wise and full of wonder at the sometimes sinister tricks of life. The best play I have seen in years.
