"There are three sides to every story," according to George Street notes. "Buried truths and old emotional wounds resurface when young Timmy McCleary returns to his parents' home after World War II. Caught in the crossfire of unresolved tensions over money, love and heroism, the new veteran finds himself engaged in a battle on the home front — where all three family members ache for a peaceful détente."
Tickets are available through the George Street Playhouse Box Office, either by phone at (732) 246-7717 or by shopping online at www.GSPonline.org. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue.
