Our final show of the season...
you don't want to miss this one, folks!!!

The play takes place on Labor day Weekend in the joint backyards of
two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens,
who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie,
and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher.
The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and
invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man
named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire
group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents
who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position
behind the eight ball. Flo is sensitively wary of temptations for
her daughters. Madge, bored with being only a beauty,
sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the
excitement Hal promises.

Her sister, Millie, finds her balance for the first time through the
stranger's brief attention. And the spinster is stirred to make
an issue out of the dangling courtship that has brightened her
 life in a dreary, minor way.
