Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, Randy and Tyler discuss the 1929 Pulitzer Prizewinning Play, Street Scene by Elmer Rice.

From Stageagent.com: The claustrophobic reality of living in a six-story walk-up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan is the focus of Elmer Rice’s Street Scene. With the neighbors all knowing everyone’s business, and constantly passing judgement on everyone’s behavior, it is easy to see how this melting pot can quickly become dangerous.
On two scorching hot days in June 1929, the pot finally boils over for Frank Maurrant. The rumors about his wife having an affair have become too loud and too persistent for him to ignore. How many times does he have to lay down the law in his own home before it is followed? To make matters worse, that guy keeps turning up and talking to his wife in full view of everyone.

******* IN OUR NEXT EPISODE *******
Join us as we discuss the 2007 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire.

From Stageagent.com: Becca and Howie Corbett have a picture perfect family life in the suburbs of New York until a random, tragic accident takes the life of their four-year old son. Soon after, Becca’s younger, irresponsible sister, Izzy, announces that she is pregnant: there will now be a new child in the family. As Becca and Howie grow apart, Becca’s mother, Nat, badgers Becca about her grieving process, and Jason, the young driver who killed their son, continually shows up to ask forgiveness, the group is on a bumpy road to healing with no road map in sight. Rabbit Hole delves into the complexity of a family navigating deep grief, and learning what it means to live a fruitful life when things fall apart.
