  • Overview
    The play tells the story of a young man's decision to leave the home of his parents for the bachelor pad of his older brother leading a swinging '60s lifestyle. At the beginning of the story Buddy is a 21-year-old virgin and older brother Alan a ladies' man, but as the play progresses Alan discovers real feelings for one of the many women with whom he is currently sleeping when she elects to leave him and he falls apart in response. Juxtaposing Alan's hunger for companionship with Buddy's metamorphosis into a ladies' man himself, the playwright points up the fundamental spiritual and emotional emptiness of the playboy lifestyle for which the younger sibling desperately yearns.
