Expectations are high when Timmy Cleary comes home to his parents in the Bronx after serving his time in World War II. Of course Nettie and John are joyous and welcoming at first, but soon past conflicts resurface and the old game of tug of war begins. Frank Gilroy's humorous and poignant drama won the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize.

THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES is the fourth offering in MCT's Pulitzer Prize Series.

Co-sponsored by Michael & Shirley Mosesson and The Dental Offices of Dr. David Paris
