Ethics and the Theater will present: The Subject Was Roses, by Frank D. Gilroy.

This Pulitzer Prize–winning play scrutinizes the American ideal of family through the Clearys, husband, wife, and son, living a middle-class life in the mid-20th-century Bronx. When son Timmy returns home from serving in World War II, he disrupts the tenuous peace between his parents. As both vie for his love and support, old scars are reopened and new wounds inflicted.

Come at 6:30 pm for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Betsy Ungar.
