A comedy of family life by the authors of AND CAME THE SPRING. The setting is a colorful "rumpus-room." When Mrs. Brooks goes away for a weekend to attend a college reunion, she leaves an already bewildered Mr. Brooks�who suffers from imaginary ulcers as Second Vice President of the First National Bank�in charge of the teen-age family. Poor Father, bombastic, ineffectual, comic, lovable, he finds himself involved in several explosive young love duels, in a neighborhood feud that leads to a lawsuit against his own boss, in taking part as a blackfaced endman in the PTA Minstrel, in hanging nine rooms of wallpaper single-handed, and in many other comic situations. In short, everything happens to Father! Mingled in the romp also are many lively young people, including a pretty daughter with a temper; three young soldiers eager for a good time; an unpredictible young sister; and others. After an evening of bubbling excitement everything is properly settled. After all, Mrs. Brooks assures her browbeaten mate, weekends like this happen at least ONCE IN EVERY FAMILY.
