Editor reviews

In this bittersweet Broadway play, Jason Robards is Jacob Brackish, a tough high school music teacher who is dying at home. His advertisement for a housekeeper is answered by Katherine, a woman Jacob has forgotten he flunked several years before. Robards is superb as the crotchety Brackish; he brings listeners' sympathies close, then pushes them back with one rattling cough, one caustic line. With all the Southie sass of a true Bostonian, Ivey infuses both playful revenge and personal pain into the role of Katherine with a nearly flawless accent. This play is at once hilarious, touching and unforgettable.

Summary

Jacob Brackish, the toughest, meanest teacher ever to set foot in Gloucester High School, is dying at home. His advertisement for a housekeeper to look after him during his final years is answered by a mousy 40-year-old named Kathleen, a woman Jacob has forgotten he flunked years before. Judith Ivey and Jason Robards recreate the roles they originated on Broadway in this humorous and moving play.
