Awake and Sing!

A Jewish family in New York City struggles to survive the Great Depression. Three generations share a small Bronx apartment as each family member seeks individual happiness while doing his or her part to keep the family solvent. The experience and pragmatism of the parents are in conflict with the nostalgia of the grandfather and the dreams of their children. Can hope survive or will reality tear the complex and loving family apart? Full of humor, poetry and drama, Awake and Sing! is an American classic of Chekhovian proportions and the finest play by Philadelphia native Clifford Odets.
