Synopsis & Character Descriptions
In the backyard of a Pittsburgh tenement in 1948, friends gather to mourn for a blues guitarist and singer who died just as his career was on the verge of taking off. Through flashbacks, the audience learns of the events of the past week that led to Floyd Barton’s death.
