Katy and Jeff Cooper have three sons (one a Harvard senior), a comfortable suburban home, and the prospect of a full professorship (English) for Jeff. But somehow the bloom has worn off their marriage: Jeff is at that dangerous age where an attractive student has caught his eye; while Katy is more receptive than she might admit to the attentions of the attractive bachelor professor who rents their garage apartment. Yet when their Harvard son returns home with a lovely young actress who proves to be his mistress it rather shocks his conventional parents-but also triggers the hilarious, and headlong, events that form the central action of the play. Fortunately the resultant crises are resolved in due course, and with all the skill, taste and perceptive humor that have become hallmarks of Jean Kerr's unique comic gift
