Drama. Adapted by John McGreevey. From the book by Catherine Marshall.
Cast: 7m., 8w. Peter Marshall has gathered into his home the young people of the community. He makes their joys and sorrows his own. His wife knows how ready he is to overtax his strength on behalf of others, but he good-humoredly evades her efforts to shield him. To Peter Marshall, life is service. Sometimes this means he gives offense to the more conservative elements in the church. Two elder members are scandalized when they walk in on their minister illustrating (with the tea cloth on his head) how to play the role of an Arab sheik. He even opposes a distinguished senator when he finds him determined to jail a boy who has erred but is now ready to live honestly. Although he has even more serious problems, we see his indomitable spirit triumphing over every threat. This is a splendid play to give in any community and one so different in its appeal that it attracts unusually large audiences. One int. set.
