About this show

Martin Sheen, Frances Conroy, and Brian Geraghty star in the Pulitzer Prize-Winning drama The Subject Was Roses. Neil Pepe directs. The play is a heartfelt and honest depiction of a father, mother and son whose complex and strained family dynamic becomes sadly clear after the son returns from a three-year stint in the army. Sheen portrayed the son in the original Broadway production and he also appeared in the 1968 film version; he will play the father in the Taper production, with Conroy playing the mother and Geraghty playing the son.
