Sam Mandelbaum as Tom Wingfield / by Dan Baumer


"You think I want to spend fifty-five years of my life down there in that Celotex interior with fluorescent tubes? Honest to God, I'd rather somebody picked up a crowbar and battered out my brains than go back mornings! But I go. Sure, every time you come in yelling that bloody "Rise and Shine" I rise and shine!! I think how lucky dead people are! But I get up.

For sixty-five dollars a month, I give up all that I dream of doing and being ever and you say that is all I think of. Oh, God!"
