When you're a young bachelor in your own apartment for the first time, even if it's a cramped cold water flat, you know what exhilaration is. If a pretty actress moves into the next apartment, you've got an even better beginning. Don has it better yet: the actress has proposed friendship and the removal of the connecting door. Well into the play, the audience and the actress discover that Don is blind. He is escaping from an overprotective mother and trying to learn if he has the talent to become a song writer. When mother and the girl meet, and the two simply do not mix. Mother breaks up the relationship and the actress packs herself off to live with a director. When mother realizes how she has demoralized her son, and wishes the other woman was back. In comedy wishes can come true.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
