Act Your Age (manuscript)
Act Your Age (manuscript)
By William Davidson.

Cast: 3m., 6w. Out of patriotism, Angy and Jerry started writing to a pair of lonesome sailors, and just to make it more interesting, passed themselves off as young ladies instead of kids of 14. And then they hear Gadget and Jim are coming! They get into grown-up clothes and it looks like fun until Aunt Sandra arrives and decides to teach them a lesson.

She dresses up as a brat of a child and makes a holy terror of herself. From then on, it's a whirl of fun and complications. The boys wire Commander Stone for an extension of leave … to get married. Their sentimental old commander is sure to fall for that line! But Sandra happens to be the commander's daughter—and she intercepts the message and re-addresses it to her dad as "Picklepuss" Stone!

In the meantime, Gadget falls for the cook (a lady wrestler in her time off) and wires for another extension. This time it's to bury their wives, who have supposedly drowned! But Commander Stone unexpectedly arrives and the boys are forced to put on a hokum "wake" scene, which is one long cascade of laughs.

In a sparkling finale, the 14-year-olds thankfully return to their own age. Gadget's heart belongs to Cora (and her cooking) , and there really is a romance between Sandra and Jim for the commander to feel sentimental about. Your cast will particularly enjoy the wide variety of roles offered by this comedy, each part with its own wonderful comic moment at the center of the stage.
