George Axelrod's lighthearted look at marital infidelity, viewed through the lens of 1950s morality.

"The Seven Year Itch" phrase became popular among psychologists in mid-20th century, referring to the urge to stray after seven years of marriage.As the play opens, Richard Sherman is alone in his apartment, with his wife and child away for the summer. When a tomato plant crashes onto his terrace from the apartment above, the jarring experience has a strange effect: He begins to see his seven-year marriage as unexciting and suddenly itches to exercise his libido. Inviting the attractive upstairs neighbor down for a drink, Sherman undergoes a soul struggle of hilarious proportions as he contemplates seduction.
