Directed by Kirk Browning

William Saroyan's Pulitzer Prize-winning play revolves around the regulars of a San Francisco bar in 1939. Lonely, lovelorn, weary or cynical, the characters drift in and out of the bar and each other's lives, giving voice to the writer's philosophies as they comment about the impending world war, the beauty of art, and traditional notions of good and evil.
