Additional Info

After a two-year London run, this comedy created a sensation on the summer circuit with Betsy Palmer in the lead role. Miss Palmer took the part of an American married to the lord of an expansive Highland estate. He is still most anxious to have a son and heir, and keep the tradition of the manor going. But after having given him six daughters in nine years, his wife feels she is entitled to some time off to enjoy the social benefits of her position. She is reinforced by the arrival of her parents from America, and they turn out to be the most delightfully contrary characters the Scots, or indeed the London audiences, have seen for a long, long, time. There is a richly comic contrast between the American and Highland ways of life, and a moral for a chagrined relative and would-be heir who finds the Highlands too full of unspeakable nature for his sensitivities.
