Review: The Subject Was Roses

User Review  - Bobby Sullivan - Goodreads

This play is almost half a century old, but it's not really dated at all. It could easily be staged today. Three really rich characters, all of whom would be very satisfying to perform. Read full review

Review: The Subject Was Roses

User Review  - Chris Gager - Goodreads

I worked for a while as an unpaid volunteer tech. assistant at Theater By the Sea in Portsmouth, NH back in the fall of 1969. This was the play I worked on and I'm pretty sure I read it. Saw the movie too which was pretty good. Date read is approximate. Read full review
