Additional Info

Jennifer and Archibald Davis buy a house in West  Hills, New Jersey, and for the next thirty years their lives and the fate of the West Hills community are intenwoven into what the playwright calles "a saga of all the brave, honest, little men who march to work every morning  and come home at night to the castle where the women they love keep the flag  flying."
