Mrs. Hallam has four sons-and four daughters-in-law. Though her youngest son is thirty-five, she still exercises a dominating influence over her children and, as if to prove how strong are the ties binding the Hallams, she gathers the family together at her house every Sunday evening. The sons are all 'in business', though Victor, the youngest, once had dreams of another kind of career. Stella, his wife, who has resisted attempts to mould her to the family pattern, is still regarded as an outsider. She speaks 'another language'. The play opens with one of her infrequent appearances at the regular family party when she renews acquaintance with her nephew Peter-now twenty-one and dangerously like the youthful Victor. The results of this meeting make a play that shows the conflicting emotions and ideals that exist beneath the surface of an apparently united family. (Mary Maxted)
