WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tea and Sympathy, set in the early 1950's, is the story of a lonely and misunderstood youth (Benjamin Sands) who, because he has artistic sensibilities and has played women's parts in amateur theatricals, is wrongly suspected of homosexual tendencies. Although the master in whose house he rooms (William Cullinan) is one of his chief persecutors, the wife of the teacher (Chandre C. Sergent) is kind and understanding, as well as beautiful. The play is pretty specific about the physical aspects of the resulting relationship, but it handles it with taste, delicacy and considerable emotional skill.
