Awake and Sing archiveClifford Odets' neglected Chekhovian masterpiece is as robust, emotional and gritty as the Great Depression itself. Crowded together in a cramped Bronx brownstone tenement and laid low by the Depression, this moving drama of a dysfunctional Jewish family pulses with intense vitality and hard-hitting realism, as they struggle for survival in the midst of poverty and hypocrisy, and grasp for dreams in a blunt, mean, angry world.
