The play, to be directed by George Archambeault, concerns the fortunes of the Keller and Deever families. During the war, Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop that made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a large amount of money during the time Deever spent in prison.
The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the act that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominates the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power.
