Add to the immensely popular comedy series the hilarious touch the Hayeses bring to all their plays and you have only a slight idea of the comedy, MISTER PEEPERS. Here is a play ideally suited to all groups - professional, community, college and high school theatres. It's a comedy about teachers and students that will entertain all ages. It recounts the troubles that amiable, quiet Mister Peepers encounters on one highly amusing weekend. He receives an offer to give up his career for a position in the business world at an astonishing salary; he finds out what hot water a man can get into when a spoiled and impulsive young lady takes it into her imaginative head that she is in love with you - Peepers, that is. And on top of it all, Mister Peepers himself falls in love and begins to build up his own pipedream that includes membership in a swank country club, an executive suite with private secretary, a house with picture windows and twins. No one is more surprised than Mister Peepers when everything - including the pampered girl's irascible father and the outraged school principal - explodes in his face. The humorous and surprising manner in which Mister Peepers meets these and other problems is the substance of a most unusual and engaging play that can be recommended, without reservation, for all producing groups. Whether you know Mister Peepers from television or not, you'll love him wholeheartedly when you meet him in this comedy.
