Monologue Context

George Deever has visited his father in prison - the first visit in all the years

Monologue Text

Start: [breathlessly] My life turned upside down since then. I couldn’t go back to work when you left. I wanted to go to Dad and tell him you were going to be married.

End: ... and now Joe is a big shot and your father is a patsy. [He gets up.] Now, what’re you going to do? Eat his food, sleep in his bed? Answer me; what’re you going to do?
