In 1950s Houston, an affluent couple is transformed by tragedy when their son dies under mysterious circumstances and the husband loses his job of 40 years. Shirley Knight recreates her Tony-nominated performance in this 1995 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama.More
This recording of Horton Foote's Pulitzer Prize-winning work is an audiobook that will remind senior listeners of pre-television days when radio drama kept them glued to the Motorola. The principals in this drama about shattered lives are a long married husband and wife - first devastated by the death of their son (was it suicide? was he gay?), then by the loss of the husband's job. David Selby and Shirley Knight recreate their acclaimed stage roles with outstanding audio performances. Equally good are the minor characters who round out this compelling listening experience.

The way the actors beautifully portrayed the tension of dancing around taboo topics.
You could not help but have a great deal of compassion for these older people making the attempt to navigate a changing world.
