Faye Dunaway returned to Broadway to play the heroine of this poignant play which takes place in an Irish Catholic lower middle class Brooklyn neighborhood between 1923 and 1942. When orphaned Fran has to fend off a passionate overture from the uncle who is raising her, she moves out and goes to work. Light hearted, nostalgic scenes of Brooklyn follow. Fran marries a handsome fellow and eventually finds herself supporting a son and a heavy drinking, improvident husband. She returns to the old neighborhood and reconciles with her now widowed, destitute uncle who is confined to a wheelchair.
