Comedy

Tommy Tucker and Grace Livingstone are in their first year of married life. Tommy is prosaic and practical, while Grace thinks she has outgrown the small town of her birth. Tommy takes Grace to a new city and sets about building up a new business, while Grace has greater opportunities for the indulgence of her social ambitions. The family life for the two is shown, together with their friends and associates. Father and Mother Livingston are in and out of the story at intervals, and there are many intimate glimpses of domestic and social life which cause conflicting emotions in the hearts of the on lookers. Here is a comedy which shows real human beings in an everyday sort of story that is so well handled that it makes entertainment of the highest quality.

Frank Craven's "The First Year" used to be a staple of community theatre, but time has seemingly passed it by. However, it's still a charming little love story-- if a bit old-fashioned. If you can find a copy (or are willing to put in a request to Samuel French), the only thing you'll definitely have to change is the next door neighbor's daughter in Act Two, as she something of a stereotype of a young African-American female from the 1920s (when this play was written), Especially worth checking out if you want to reach out to an older audience.
