About this show

Frank D. Gilroy's The Subject Was Roses tells the story of Timmy who after serving in World War II, returns home to find his parents are strangers--to him and each other. When Timmy insists his father take credit for the roses he bought his mother, long-hidden resentments rise to the surface, as this attempted act of kindness instead becomes the epicenter of domestic warfare. When the deception is uncovered, the tenuous ties still holding them together begin to unravel and each person's doubts--about marriage, family values, and Timmy's achievements overseas--threaten to sever any hope for reunion. Charles Ault directs.
