About this show

Richard Miller is all of sixteen. He's been inhaling the intoxicating fumes of Shaw, Oscar Wilde, and Omar Khayam and testing his good-natured parents with his advanced ideas. When Muriel McComber, his true love, spurns him on the Fourth of July, Richard decides to experience sin in a big way--gin fizzes and a tart's kisses in a roadside dive. How the Miller clan copes with his hangover is an evergreen study of family ties and horse sense, circa 1906.
