Newly revised! Recently produced in 2006 at the Atlantic Theatre Company in New York City, this witty and sophisticated satire by the author of One Shoe Off and other popular comedies, this play takes place during a child's fourth birthday party. The boy's parents have invited another couple, anthropologists renowned for their international studies of childhood behavior. The adults become so involved in debating various theories of child rearing and telling each other stories that they forget to actually be parents.
