As is necessary for a pretty girl with her own student apartment, April McGregor has learned to fend off wolves—although she is hard pressed to cope with Skipper Allen, a particularly persuasive graduate student who is convinced that her secret wish is to have him move in with her. Thanks to a bad back, which suddenly acts up and leaves him temporarily immobile, Skipper unexpectedly achieves his goals, although not with the pliant acceptance he has hoped for. But then his challenge is to win April over to his amorous point of view—which results in a series of uproarious happenings, plus near expulsion for both of them. What finally almost thaws our steadfastly proper heroine is jealously—managed through the unlikely, and silent, assistance of a department-store dummy. But the ruse is discovered in time to preserve honor, and even the indomitable Skipper ultimately concedes defeat. However, true love (which was always there for the finding) comes to the fore when the two, at last, share a real and genuine moment of loss, which tells them how mature and meaningful their relationship could and should (and most certainly will) be.
Widely toured, and then presented on Broadway, this effervescent comedy of the romantic misadventures of two attractive college kids is as hilarious and timeless—and touching—as love itself.
