Pulitzer, From Broadway

Winner! 1929 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
An outstanding Broadway success and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is a panorama of the comedy and tragedy of daily life played to the accompaniment of rumbling elevated trains and the tooting of whistles. Though this remarkable play is primarily a slice of life in a poor neighborhood, it is held together by a strikingly dramatic plot which has to do with a theatrical scene shifter whose wife has been having a sordid affair with the milkman. The husband returns unexpectedly and kills them both. The incident serves chiefly to crystalize the viewpoint and very human reactions of the entire neighborhood. This modern classic that catches the varying moods of daily life as it is lived by millions in a large metropolis.
STREET SCENE was originally presented at The Playhouse in New York City on January 10th, 1929.
