This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama by Frank D. Gilroy tells the story of Timmy Cleary, a young, idealistic soldier who returns from World War II to his parent's New York apartment to find their marriage in shambles. Reminiscing, the family attempts to recapture the past and return to a life that never really was. Instead, Timmy discovers that he's left the battlefields of Europe only to become a prisoner of his parents' war of regret and recrimination.
John Cleary: 50s. A coffee merchant. Looks at his life as financial failure. Tends take his frustrations out on his family and is unable to communicate on a deeper level.
Nettie Cleary: 40-50. John’s wife. A stay at home Mother. Dreams of simpler times full of love, compassion and understanding. Having Timmy out of the house has left her lost with no real purpose. His return serves as the only happiness she’s been supplied in a long while.
Timmy: 20s. Has returned home after serving in WWII. In his younger years was a “mommas boy.” Now that he has returned he can relate to his father more, which he could never do as a child. Witty and charming.
