It is 1949 when Phil Granger finally reappears in the small Missouri town he left six years earlier for the unspeakable horrors of World War II. His wife, Meredith, is there to meet him, put him back together…and keep him home. In five scenes spanning twenty-four years of Postwar life, Sharr White takes us on an intimate journey to an unspoken side of the Greatest Generation, chronicling Meredith and Phil Granger's struggles to survive together through the boom of the 1950s, the hope and unbearable losses of the 1960s, and the resounding search for redemption following the Vietnam war.
"This is theater at its thought-provoking, affecting best." —Newsweek. "A wrenching look back at twenty-four years of post World War II America…extremely well-written, serious slice-of-life drama." —CurtainUp. "The resonance for White's audiences has been evident…several characters are at the darkening intersection of this drama that some have remarked has the bearing of an Arthur Miller play." —CNN.com. "A beautiful character study and an intriguing look at life and relationships evolving through time…Grade: A." —Cincinnati CityBeat. "…Sharr White's riveting SIX YEARS devastatingly demonstrated the lingering damage of war in those who fight." —Miami Herald. "…easily one of the most compelling dramas to come out of the Humana Festival of New American Plays in recent years." —Lexington Herald Leader.
