Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics' Circle Award, The Time of Your Life introduces strange and kindly Joe, whose search for happiness and answers to far-reaching enigmas of life takes him to Nick's waterfront saloon where his friend and errand boy, huge and simple, falls in love with a fragile lady of the evening. Wandering in and out of the saloon are vivid characters who want to get more living done and are as unsure as Joe about how to go about it.
