Another heart-warming and hilarious comedy by the author of But Fair Tomorrow. Dick, Patricia and Dorothy Maxwell find themselves "in charge" of their home during the unexplained absence of their mother. Patricia persuades her brother and sister to rent rooms to "Tourists" - thereby easing the family's supposed need for funds. Mamie Beggs, maid, cook, amateur detective (also one of the funniest characters you've ever met) refuses to become involved. But when the house is full of a great assortment of would-be tenants, Mamie involves everyone by suddenly developing a case of measles. The whole crowd is quarantined for two weeks. Mamie is sure the mysterious Albert Wilson, his wife, and glamorous daughter Annabelle are criminals. Annabelle becomes the unwilling means of bringing romance to Dorothy and Michael Street, a handsome young guest. Finally Patricia's lovelorn slave, red-headed Willie Peabody, stumbles on the key to the Wilson mystery. Just as Patricia decides people are pretty easy to get along with after all, a surprise ending brings the play to an unexpected and riotously funny climax. Easily cast, easily produced and very easy to laugh at.
