In the play, newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter are beginning life together in their first apartment. He is an up-and-coming lawyer, and she is set on becoming the perfect wife, even though she is somewhat of a free spirit. Corie's mother, Mrs. Banks, is lonely now that Corie is married, and like any mother would, she dotes on her daughter. The neighbors in the Bratter's building are a varied bunch of characters. Victor Velasco befriends the couple and adds to the fun, according to the theater's playbill.
