Set in a New York house occupied by a number of artists – both successful and unsuccessful – A Man’s World centers on Frank Ware (Mara Davi), a writer raising an adopted son (Finn Douglas). Frank’s books center on the social wrongs endured by women, a commitment intensified by the suffering of her son’s birth mother. Her editor, Malcolm Gaskell (Robert Cuccioli), is in love with Frank and she returns his affection, despite his condescending attitude toward her work. Eventually, however, she must confront the radical differences between his acceptance of the double standard and her insistence that men and women be treated equally.

A Man’s World is one of Crothers’ earliest and most daring dramas. Crothers once said in an interview: “With few exceptions, every one of my plays has been a social attitude toward women at the moment I wrote it.”
