The scene throughout this play is the kitchen of the Morgan family, where the old people cling to the quaint speech, the old-fashioned pictures, the delf ornaments, and all the other idols of their generation, vigorously resisting the iconoclastic onslaughts of their progeny.
A compromise is made with the younger generation by a chalk line across the kitchen floor, separating the old from the new. The climax comes with a conflict between an old-fashioned suitor for the daughter's hand, and a modern lover.
. Hugh Quinn , the author, began his career as a dramatist by winning first prize at the first Northern Ireland Dramatic Festival in 1929, in the manuscript section for one-act plays. Later he wrote Mrs. McConaghy's Money, which was performed by the Abbey Players in Dublin, broadcast several times from Northern Ireland, and produced at the Embassy Theatre in London by John Gielgud.
