This play, written in 1949, was produced after World War II.  The war was over, the soldiers were home, and families were reuniting trying to get back to normal.  There was Harry Truman in the White House; a war beginning in Korea shortly, and a belief in the rise of Communism that all Americans should be afraid of.
