Father Knows Best is a family friendly play with the following
Adapted by Kristin
Sergel from the radio play by Edward James.
Getting her first date with Ralph wasn't easy and Betty's afraid
it'll be her last. After reading a newspaper story about teenage
elopement, Father has decided he'd better get acquainted with the
young man first. He asks the family what's so awful about spending
an evening at home? Nothingóbut it seems that Bud, Kathy and even
Mother have made plans to go out. Aggravated, Father puts his foot
down and they all stay home. The town's social life is suddenly
centered on the Anderson household. The excitement and humorous
complications grow and then, in the final scene, Father discovers
that while he may know best, the young people know a little, too.
