Farce / Characters: 5 males, 3 females
Here is a wild farce with twists of fate, sight gags, mistaken identities and hilarious comic lines. Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the "couple" they're going to be investigated by a Mr. Spinner. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancee, Kate. Complicating matters further Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back, Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancee, and Leslie's ex girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore. The premiere was at New Jersey's Dam Site Dinner Theatre.
"Enough comic lines to fill an encyclopedia of humor." Red Bank Register.
The Asbury Park Press warned the diner to eat carefully before curtain time or "he might laugh enough to choke if he does not."
