The Subject Was Roses

By Frank D. Gilroy

Directed by C. Michael Wright

Expectations are high when Timmy Cleary comes home to his parents in the Bronx after serving his time in World War II. Of course Nettie and John are joyous and welcoming at first, but soon past conflicts resurface and the old game of tug of war begins. Frank Gilroy’s humorous and poignant drama won the 1965 Pulitzer Prize and will be the fourth offering in our Pulitzer series.
