Six Years is the poignant and powerful drama that tracks the marriage of Phil and Meredith Granger, in five separate scenes, each separated by six years, beginning at the end of WWII and ending with the Vietnam War. We see them first deal with the aftermath of war, transition to a tremendous business success and continue forward dealing with their son in the Vietnam era. Mr. White's razor sharp script illuminates an understanding of marriage reminiscent of the classic American writers Arthur Miller and Eugene O'Neil.

Phil Granger returns home from the war. Two years later than expected. His wife, Meredith, asks few questions and comforts him. Off goes the quintessential "Greatest Generation" couple, embarking on the American Dream. Sharr White's fascinating tale follows this couple over the course of five separate scenes, each set six years apart, charting their journey through a "Levittown like" real estate development financial success, "Mad Men like" early 60's uncertainties, and finally "Vietnam era" complications now as the parents of an enlisted soldier. Six Years, tells the story of America in a riveting homegrown drama.
