"One of the boldest and most brilliant American classics teeming with vitality and life."- New York Observer

For his first Huntington production, Artistic Director Nicholas Martin will revive this colorful and sprawling production, one of the hits of the 1997 Williamstown Theatre Festival season. At once funny and disturbing, this gritty melodrama draws a powerful portrait of class differences, as luxury apartments encroach upon a broken-down neighborhood. Dead End, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sidney Kingsley, had such an impact on the American audience when it debuted in 1935 that it sparked the social reform of tenement housing and the judicial system for juvenile delinquents.
