From Broadway

Nominee! 1986 Drama Desk Award for Best New Play
This finely wrought autobiographical drama is about a Chicago family's financial struggles in the late 1940's. Fred Small has a chance for a promotion that would necessitate moving to another city. The youngest son is caught between his desire to be an actor and his father's determination that he finish high school and go to college. Bea, the wife and mother, has her own ideas about how the family should be run. Ed Harris and Judith Ivey starred as Fred and Bea in the Broadway premiere.
