The family that stays together, plays together. The proof is in a rare revival of Frank Gilroy's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Subject Was Roses," opening Saturday at Sherman Oaks' Whitefire Theater. Gilroy's autobiographical comedy-drama is about pampered son Timmy Cleary, who returns from World War II a changed and much more mature young man, and the effect he has on his father and mother, John and Nettie Cleary. The family has trouble sticking together.

Disturbed by offensive language in a play being performed here, a theater patron says he will disrupt future performances if the once-deleted words are restored. "I don't care who wrote the play, I don't like the remark," Edward Brisgel said. Brisgel was talking about the term kikes, used in Frank Gilroy's play "The Subject Was Roses." The play, which won the 1965 Pulitzer Prize, is set in 1946, when a son returns from World War II.
