Unit Set/Multiple Settings

John Chapman, Daily News, thought that in the first act "the wedding night (scene) is very, very funny." but Nadel, New York World Telegram & Sun, insisted that "Miss Rudd's best writing is in the second act, (which) is very funny." We suggest that if you do both acts, it will be "very, very, very funny." For this is a lark about a writer of paperback detective stories who decides to marry the girl with whom he has cohabited for three years after she declared that she is pregnant. The ups and downs of marriage, the diapers and formulas and all introduce the couple to a totally new kind of life. Then comes the big break when his stories are turned into a television series. He becomes stinking rich, and decides he is now entitled to a mistress. The marriage hits the rocks for a short while; but the wife knew all along that it was only a lark.
"It is extremely funny ... Opened to an almost hysterically receptive audience ... Lines and situations which are professionally hilarious ... I laughed unashamed throughout most of the evening." - New York Journal-American
