ABOUT THE SHOW
Odets’ 1935 play follows the Bergers, a Jewish family from the Bronx trying to make ends meet during the Depression. The family’s matriarch Bessie – one of the most spectacular roles in the American canon – will stop at nothing to keep her family together… even if it means ripping her children’s dreams apart. (Recommended for ages 12 and up)
Approximately 2 hour 25 minutes including one intermission.
