Ann Hamilton is a beautiful small-town spinster who is jarred out of her routine by a telegram that tells her that Barnaby Gaul is coming back to her. Then we, but not Ann, discover that the telegram is a practical joke. However, Barnaby arrives and they fall in love. Things look very nice until Barnaby decides to go away and an Okie family settles down on the front lawn to wait for mother to have another child. But in the end Ann gets Barnaby and happiness is ahead. Highly recommended for Little Theatre production but is suitable for high schools and colleges as well.
First produced in New York City by Eddie Dowling and The Theatre Guild with Walter Huston.
