This highly acclaimed, poignantly observant drama is about a well-to-do family's painful adjustment to tragedy.  Conrad Jarrett, a boy in his late teens, has recently lost his older brother in a boating accident.  What remains of Conrad's family, with his successful, well-intentioned father and his beautiful, organized, and emotionally remote mother, is in terrible jeopardy, as is Conrad himself.  They are all "ordinary people" and each is waging a difficult battle.  This play goes to the essence of a young man, his friends and family, their relationships and survival.  The film version of this book, directed by Robert Redford, won four Academy Awards including best picture.
