Storyline

In the Depression, Pete and Sidney are good kids, working hard, giving money to their parents, and engaged for three years while they save to get married. Each has a selfish mother: Sydney's is cold, Pete's is clingy. Sidney's mother is looking for her own happiness, no matter how much that search harms her daughter and long-suffering husband; and, the longer the engagement lingers, the more pressure Pete's mom puts on Sidney to break it off and set her son free. "After Tomorrow" is Pete and Sidney's favorite song, but with illness, poverty, and temptation: will that good day ever come? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Else Taylor: I've worked and slaved for you and him from the day that you were born.
Sidney Taylor: Well, I didn't ask to be born.
Else Taylor: And I didn't want you.
Sidney Taylor: Oh, Mother. Don't!
Else Taylor: I didn't want a baby. I was only a kid myself. I've never had any fun. I was never in love with your father, and I hated having you.
Sidney Taylor: Stop it! Stop it! You don't know what you're saying!
Else Taylor: Oh yes I do. You and your father have never known me. I've always been a stranger to you. Go to your father. You're his, not mine. He's the one who wanted you - not me.

Depression Street
9 July 2016 | by apocryphosSee all my reviews

"Back Street" brought down to roaches, clinging 'n swinging moms and basement cold water flats! Depression Dirge Tune: "All the world will smile again. Dialogue punctuated by the "Aw! Gees! and "Swells" vocabulary of that inchoate time. Grace notes: Clinging mom's Wedding Gift: a bra wafted aloft. Silver plated wedding gift (for 4) from co-workers. Nostalgic Notes: Doctor conveniently across tenement street. No Radio! No fans!No fridge! Surprises: Anti-smoking message and barely chaste lovers. Ending: Erotic Niagara Falls. Better than North by Northwest but in the tradition of "Our Daily Bread", the"Crowd" and "Beggars of Life".
