A classic play about hope, love and betrayal. Tom is frustrated in his job at the shoe warehouse and distressed at home by the mental withdrawal from life of his crippled sister, Laura. Their mother, Amanda, clings frantically to the idea that Laura can lead a normal life while Laura lives for her glass figurines and the worn-out gramophone records left by her absent father.

"Every time you come in yelling that Goddamn 'Rise and Shine! Rise and Shine!' I say to myself, 'How lucky dead people are!' But I get up. I go! For sixty-five dollars a month I give up all that I dream of doing and being ever! And you say self -- self's all I ever think of. Why, listen, if self is what I though of, Mother, I'd be where he is -- GONE!"
