Discover love again, in this beautiful comedy!
It is the fourth of July. A small town in middle-American vividly comes to life with fireworks, lodge picnics, old songs, gardens, family gatherings and moonlit beaches.
Richard Miller is all of seventeen. He's been inhaling the intoxicating fumes of Shaw, Oscar Wilde and Omar Khayyam and testing his good-natured parents with his advanced ideas. When Muriel McComber, his true love, spurns him, Richard decides to heal his wounds with gin fizzes and a tart's kisses in a roadside dive. How the Miller clan copes with his rebellious attitude is a study of family ties and horse sense, circa 1906. This show is a gentle comedy with a Norman Rockwell feel.
