Awake and Sing! Summary

Generally considered Clifford Odets’ finest play, Awake and Sing! is the story of the Bergers, a lower-middle-class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. By turns starkly dramatic and vividly comic, Odets’ characters convey a pressured existence that captures the enduring belief in the American dream.
