Full Length Drama / 6m, 3f / Interior / This engrossing drama by the author of The Subject Was Roses covers eighteen months in the life of the Benti family during 1942 and 1943. The household is ruled by Mrs. Benti, a prescient and iron willed widow, and includes her three adult children: Carmen, Nettie (a main character in Roses), and Eddie as well as Carmen's illegitimate son Willis whom the others orbit like the sun. Eighteen year old Willis is mentally impaired and in a wheelchair. He appears both younger and older as he presides in often startling and humorous ways over the conflicting dreams, desires and passions that ebb and flow about him. The family appears to be making noble sacrifices in Willis' behalf, but each is actually using him for selfish ends. / "A drama of soaring beauty and power ... sprinkled with comedy."-Reuters
