Clifford Odets …

Post-Depression, The Bronx. No other playwright has ever written so intensly, so nakedly realistic about 30’s, pre-New Deal, America.
The American Jewish diaspora litteraly fills the Bronx with working class families huddled in small apartments, taking in boarders, struggling to survive. The New York garment district is fast becoming the rich center of world fashion, but not for these gritty workers.
Socialism clashes with capitalism, a suicide Marx the spot, a mother tries to run a household with dignity… see it Now.
