WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Clifford Odets' classic Depression-era drama Awake and Sing! covers a year in the life of the Bergers, an extended Jewish family who do whatever it takes to survive life in the Bronx. Written at the height of the Depression, when economic disorder led to a sudden, urgent questioning of American society, Awake and Sing depicts the too true-to-life economic hardships confronted by working-class families during the 1930s, documenting their dreams and disappointments, hopes, fears, and follies in the face of the American dream.
