A portrait of an African American working-class family, this stage production depicts an elderly grandmother's flashbacks to the affairs she had as a young woman and a hard-working father's current conflict with his two unhappy sons. Starring Frances Foster, Moses Gunn, Lou Myers, Barbara Montgomery and Charles Brown, this emotionally rich play by playwright Leslie Lee ran on Broadway in 1975.
