This is a fine piece of dramatic work. It is certainly a little outdated, and areas of it are very melodramatic. But on the whole, it succeeds due to interesting characters and a plot dealing with issues that are not often approached in the theater. Dr. Cook is the only doctor in a small town, and he has been using his power to "remove" unpleasant or harmful members of the community. When his surrogate son Jimmy arrives on the scene, the two engage in a battle of morals. The facinating part of this play is that there is nothing clear cut about it. Levin manages to argue both sides of the issue convincingly and engagingly. Take a look if you are interested in an intriguing if little known play.
