A delightful American Comedy.
The play looks at life on the home front during the waning days of World War II. In the summer of 1945, while his father is stationed in the Pacific, 14 year-old Charlie and his family head to their summer home in an effort to keep some normalcy in their lives. While there, he rebels against his mother and finds himself under the tutelage of 'the Pig Woman,' the town misfit, who tries to help him find his potential while pointing out the foibles of upper middle class society, of which they are all products. However society does not give up one of its own without a fight - as more than one person finds out.
