Edward Clinton

Published by Samuel French Inc

2 Male 4 Female

This thought provoking play raises questions about the ills of modern society, ranging from the breakdown of the family unit to the treatment of retarded children and our sometimes harsh attitudes, as a society, towards the older members of our own families

Mr. Clinton cleverly uses comedy to demonstrate how easily we are led to dream, even when that dream is out of our reach. The play quietly shows how easily we might trade in our own values for a franchised set of values

It is a contemporary tragedy, bending with twists of comedy arising out of natural situations. Mr. Clinton has drawn his characters with care, etching their personalities with compassion, insight, and most importantly, a sharp but gentle sense of humor
