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.
