Description "playwright Robert Anderson makes a very strong plea for understanding and attacks lies, lack of charity, and the harsh judgement of others. ('Manliness is not all swagger and swearing, and mountain-climbing. Manliness is also tenderness, gentleness, and consideration'.) He uses suspected homosexuality as a means to establish these points - not as a theme. The theme is love - pure, simple, and young." The Producer.
