"One of the greatest of all American plays, a wrenching kitchen-sink drama of Depression-era family life." - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
A stirring American classic, Awake and Sing is the story of the Bergers, a lower middle class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. Odets described it as “a struggle for life amid petty conditions,” capturing the frenetic, pressured existence in this crowded dwelling with robust authenticity.
