The Feuding Fathers and the Brother-Sister Wedding

Conway and Harrison have been neighbors since they were young men, more than twenty years ago. They each had a son twenty years ago, and amazingly, both boys were born on the same day, in the same hospital. Harrison also has a daughter, and his daughter is secretly in love with the neighbor boy, David Conway, the son of her father’s enemy. This sounds like the formula for a fine comedy, but the rub hasn’t even been hinted at yet.

Conway’s son and Harrison’s daughter have secretly purchased a marriage license in nearby Midvale, and are on their way to a Justice of the Peace in Midvale to tie the knot. Unfortunately, because the Conway boy has been accepted into a big government program, he also needs a copy of his birth certificate, and this will be the center of controversy. It seems that at birth, the Conway boy and the Harrison boy were accidentally switched.

This is 1944, and there is no such thing as a dna test, or any other scientific way to prove parentage, so the written evidence on their birth certificates is found legal, and the boys are ordered to leave their homes and move next door to be with their real father.

Besides the obvious chaos that this will bring, the two youngsters in Midvale about to be married in nearby Midvale are actually brother and sister. The small town will absolutely go wild! It will take a great amount of laughter to straighten this one out! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
