Three generations of a tempestuous family find their ideals severely tested as they battle to adapt to the social and economic tribulations of the 1930s in this American masterpiece. Odets' greatest play has become an enduring classic of lyrical realism with its superbly faithful characterizations, deeply touching portrayal of love and sacrifice, and unique vernacular eloquence.
