Sheen returns to stage after almost two decades

The Frank D. Gilroy drama earned Sheen a 1965 Tony Award nomination after he originated the starring role of Timmy Cleary in the Broadway play, about a soldier whose parents’ marital problems surface upon his return from war.

Sheen reprised the part in the 1968 screen adaptation.

Now 69, he will take on the role of John, Timmy’s father, in the new Neil Pepe production, which will open on 21 February (10) and play through 21 March (10).
