The action of the play takes place in the living-room of the Turners' house in a mid-Western university town.
It has always been James Thurber's way to cloak with humour the sharpness of his social observation. This play, which he wrote with Elliott Nugent in 1940, shows that the one quality does not vitiate the other, and may surprise those who think of Thurber primarily as dog-lover and sufferer in the Battle of the Sexes. True, the battle still rages in the mid-Western university at which Tommy Turner teaches English: it is joined when Joe Ferguson, a football hearty and former beau of Tommy's wife, Ellen, turns up to attend the great football match of the season. But there is another less comic issue. Witch-hunting is now another, more deadly sport on the campus, so that when Tommy innocently proposes to read to his class the last letter of the "anarchist" Vanzetti as an example of fine writing, he is quickly in trouble..The rousing of the male animal in the mild Tommy to fight on both these fronts makes a spectacle that is both extremely funny and a pertinent warning for today.
