Interior Set

We witness the last few days of Charlie Castle, a top movie star and an idealist, whose years of compromise with his beliefs for the sake of a Hollywood career have resulted in the slow destruction of his personality. We see his struggles to escape from the net of insincerity and falsehood in which he has trapped himself, and his ultimate defeat.
A successful run on Broadway. "Not many playwrights can create characters as perceptive as these. Mr. Odets' dialogue is also fresh and dynamic." —NY Times. "Written with bold strokes of authenticity, it combines philosophy with stark realism to produce a provocative play based on the subject 'success'…and moral values." —Variety.
