I really love this play! It is a blend between morals and the simple life of an american town. I love the way it shows every detail of people's daily life, their perspective about love and marriage and how they deal with death. It made me feel that life is wonderful and we should know the meaning of every second while we live it. However, I would recommend reading it while or after watching the Broadway play in order to visualize the complex details.

This Pulitzer Prize winning play explores what it is to be human. It's a wonderful play- one that really makes you think.

"Oh earth, your're too wonderful for anybody to realize you. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it -- every, every minute?"
