“Act Your Age” was a three-act comedy in which two teenage girls were writing to two sailors. The boys received the impression, from these letters, that the girls were twenty years old and ready for marriage. As the play advanced the girls revealed their true age, but they went through quite a few contortions in order to save the boys’ honor. The boys expressed that they did not wish to marry sixteen -year -old girls. In the play, Jim spanks the aunt, Sandra, who is portraying a younger girl.
