Additional Info

Here is both a new and old-fashioned slant at unsophisticated youth as it flutters uncertainly on the wings of sixteen. George and Terry Mclntyre are the problem children in the play. Their father is a stolid university professor, who is all in favor of laying down the law. Their mother is a soft-heart who lets them have their fling. And they do. George gets a flivver. Terry gets a permanent wave, high-heeled slippers and a red evening gown. And the bewildered parents give them a party. Prudence, one of the guests, however, is an up-to-the-minute siren whose vampish ministrations unheave the calm of the festival. Terry's boy friend ignores her and her new frock completely to woo Prudence; George goes for Prudence too, and every other young Romeo on the premises vies for the favor of the coquettish maid. There happens a shortage of ice cream and George dashes to the rescue in his car, only to pass a red light, and after an argument with the traffic cop, is placed unceremoniously in jail for the night, and the very next morning is told by Prudence that he is too young. In its characters are mirrored the last days of our own adolescence and the play will therefore afford you the laughter and genuine amusement that come with such reminiscent reflection.
