Additional Info

The generation gap gapes outrageously in this comedy of confrontation. The George Spelvins arrange a meeting between their rebellious son, Adam, and Florence Craddock, a desirable prospective fiancée. Adam disrupts this meeting by introducing his hilarious girlfriend, Fat Phyllis. He creates uproarious chaos with his ingenious devices to shock the older generation. The play ends with a unique tragic-farce touch that says much about modern errors and attitudes. Playwright Cleve Haubold again blends biting wit and deep understanding of our times to produce a strangely perceptive comment on modern family life. Fat Phyllis is a classic comedy portrayal.
