The play is built around the universal truth that all generations are more or less alike after all. In a very brief prologue, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hill are waiting up for their children, worried and concerned. Mr. Hill, a bank president and trustee of his church, is growing angry and harping on the so called "irresponsibilities" of his own youthful ambitions and foibles, and the clock is turned back. We meet Mr. and Mrs. Hill as high school seniors in 1928 and get a gleeful glimpse into those not so dead days in which parents and children behaved in almost exactly the same way as they behave today. It's all laughter, heart warming tenderness and surprises.
