A very human and appealing comedy of American life by one of our outstanding dramatists. The youngest, a misunderstood and downtrodden youth, wants to write; his brothers and sister control the purse strings and lead the youngest to an unpleasant life until a charming busybody makes her appearance. A gentle romance develops and the newcomer soon realizes that the youngest faces not only the problem of his domineering family, but also the problem of his own personality which is being crushed. Of course the family would like to see the boy conform, fall into the stiff pattern of their way of life; he is about to acquiesce when it is learned that, because of a clause in his late father's will, he, not his brothers and sister, controls the family's finances. He learns to assert himself with the help of the young lady, and he turns on his oppressors in splendid, satisying and comic style.

A brilliant study of character, highly recommended to high schools. One of Barry's most popular plays and its audience grows each year.
