WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Timmy Cleary couldn't prove himself on the battle line. Now he's forced to confront the addictions, violence and unspoken slights that have flamed within his family circle for years in the 1965 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play The Subject Was Roses, presented by John Capo Productions as part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival. An absorbing character study that bravely skirts issue of spousal abuse, alcoholism and neglect, Gilroy's engaging portrait of a soldier's return from war ends up having strange reverberations in today's real war society.
