Winner! 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel A Death in the Family by James Agee and winner of the Pulitzer Prize as Best Play of the season, this is a portrait of a Tennessee family during four days in May, 1915: the warm and tender love that binds them and the tragic death of the husband which shatters the hearts of his wife and young son.
"A striking drama about death...A somber and beautiful play." - The New York Post
"A quiet compassion that one will remember long after some of the theatre's flashier sensations." - The New York Times
