The article focuses on the play "Help Wanted," about family reaction to the subject of working wives and mothers. It was recently published by Human Relations Aids. The 25 minute, six character play poses the question "should mother work when there is no financial need?" and examines the pros and cons in light of a typical family situation in which each of the other members of the family is invited by the mother to voice an opinion and help her make a decision. Their responses, and the feelings behind their responses, are exposed for audience consideration. The publisher states that the play can be successfully performed by amateurs with a minimum of rehearsal time and suggests the play be used to stimulate discussions by community groups and social or service organizations.
