Two grandmothers, a daughter, and a granddaughter gather on the deck of a beach house in Connecticut. One grandmother has flown, for the first time, from the Canadian prairie. She is an illiterate woman whose parents were homesteading pioneers. "If only I had gotten my eighth grade diploma." Her daughter is a novelist whose lover died recently. "If only I had a college degree." The second grandmother has driven up from Pennsylvania. She is an agnostic Jewish intellectual with a Master's degree. "If only I had gone to Oxford." The granddaughter is eighteen and is slated to go to Yale in the autumn. After staying out all night with a young man, she arrives on the scene to announce a reversal of plans. The three older women discuss their pasts and presents poetically, poignantly and humorously as they attempt to pass down the wisdom of their years. When the granddaughter disregards all that she hears, the prairie grandmother observes that "every time a kid is born, we start from zero."

As they go about their domestic tasks, both reflect on the hardships they have faced and on their fears of growing old alone. Though very different in class and culture, their lives have become closer than either expected, struggling with failed marriages, loneliness and the physical and mental threats of aging.

Palmer Park : a play by Joanna M Glass( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the six months after the Detroit riots of 1967, nearly 300,000 names left the Detroit phone book. The exodus was called "white flight." In the aftermath, the beautiful houses of Palmer Park sold at bargain-basement prices. And the city's schools, funded by property taxes, became peripheral victims. Palmer Park begins in 1968 when a young white couple, Martin and Kate Townsend, move to Detroit and buy a house alongside a young black couple, Fletch and Linda Hazelton. Martin is a professor of physics, Fletch is a pediatrician. The young, idealistic parents know all too well the real estate mantra of the day: "Integration is what occurs between the first black moving in and the last white moving out." They unite in their determination to maintain an integrated community. They knock on doors throughout their neighborhood, raising money for school supplies that the Board of Education can't provide. They spend an inordinate amount of time and energy persuading white suburbanites to return to the city. For a brief, shining moment, they triumph. Conflict occurs when a nearby, severely overcrowded school threatens to send one-hundred-and-thirty black children to Hampton, the Palmer Park school. Suddenly, the battle to maintain integration expands and uncovers schisms within the African-American community itself.--Page [4] of cover
