From the author of I Never Sang for My Father, this groundbreaking drama explores a sensitive young man's coming of age amid the taunts and suspicions of his classmates and teachers at a private boy's academy. Only a sympathetic act of compassion by the wife of the headmaster gives young Tom the courage to grow into a man. A hit onstage and film with Deborah Kerr.

A great piece by Robert Anderson. The plot is well developed, and so are the characters. There are many great quotations that can be drawn from this play about points of view. It was an unexpected twist at the end of the play, but one that was well justified. I can totally understand Tom's emotions because I was once like him. I didn't get the guy I loved, but I know what he felt like all the same. Overall, a great piece to read and to perform.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
