The play tells the story of Murray Burns, a cheerful eccentric raising his nephew, a twelve year old genius, in New York City. Murray believes in living life fully, even if that means going to the movies instead of looking for a job.
When social workers from the Bureau of Child Welfare come to investigate, he must decide whether to accept some level of conformity in order to show himself a fit guardian. The play is episodic and funny, as Murray meets all challenges to his lifestyle with irreverent humor. [SP]
