Following In Trousers and March of the Falsettos, it is the third in a trio of one-act musicals centering on Marvin, his wife Trina, his psychiatrist Mendel, his son Jason, and his gay lover Whizzer Brown. In this chapter of Marvin's life, Jason is preparing for his bar mitzvah and Whizzer is suffering from a mysterious, life-threatening, as yet undefined illness, which the audience recognizes is AIDS.

Marvin leaves his wife and young son for his male lover, while his psychiatrist moves in with his wife, At the end he is left with nothing except the possibility of a relationship with his son who is terrified of growing up just like Dad.
