The story begins in a household of three in a small apartment, Very soon it becomes a household of five, when the Whitakers' daughter, Kitty, moves in with her baby, her husband having gone off to the war. Eventually it becomes a household of seven, when the Whitakers' son, Archie, and his wife decide to have their baby there because the hospitals are full up. At the first curtain, as you have guessed, it has become a household of eight. A household of eight, not counting maids who come and go and whose idiosyncrasies add to the gayety. Added to this there is Dr. Bartell whose professional visit marks the peak of the fun.
"The whole thing is as silly and improbable as Charley's Aunt and yet built as surely along the sure-fire formula of laugh appeal. And members of last night's audience who recognized themselves and their experiences intermittently and continually in the sentimental and homey scrapes and situations took the play to their bosoms with merry affection." - New York World-Telegram
Three's A Family was first produced at the Longacre Theatre, New York.
