- Time Of Your Life
Play by the late American author William Saroyan.
"Set in 1939 as Europe plunges into war and America remains in the throes of the great depression, Nick's Pacific Street Saloon Bar, a seedy San Francisco waterfront honky-tonk, is a way-station welcoming lost souls of all kinds. Into Nick's world-in-a-barroom of marble-game machines, drunks, evil vice cops, and comically bad entertainers arrives Kitty Duvall, possibly an internationally renowned Burlesque dancer or possibly a "two-dollar whore" (no one can be quite sure).
While open-hearted, open-handed Joe sets up his flunky, Tom, to woo the angelic Kitty, he also helps a would-be dancer to fulfil his lifelong dream, while we meet a lovelorn young man searching for love at the end of a telephone, a longshoreman with the soul of a poet, slumming society swells, and a boozy old coot with a past that he makes up as he goes along, muttering in the corner about the abyss the world may fall into at any moment..."
