Category:  Drama

Overview: A harsh look at at American life in the 1950s which the author assumes that people worked very hard to live up to their illusions.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Marriage is a tough business, not only to live through but to witness.  This play is depressing and tough to read, but has many profound things to say about one of the most important relationships any of us will ever have.”

Ethan: “Following a bantering couple with a wit so quick, it strikes before you can hardly catch up, this play can often feel like a tennis match–constant back and forth. The virtual whiplash created by George and Martha, is only stopped by startling and intimate details of their live together.”
