September 20-22, 2012

Marshall Theatre in Ford Hall


A farce about infidelity that portrays “men and women grappling comically, frantically, and with glorious imagination in the spiky search for happiness.”

 About the Play

In this one-act comedy, filled with verve and cunningness, an orthodonist and his wife host her sister and her sister’s husband, a plastic surgeon, at their estate in Old Saybrook, Conn. The characters, archetypal New Yorkers, start out talking innocently enough, but when a secret is revealed about the house, chaos ensues as marital infidelity and other confessions come to light.

This play, which contains mature language, may not be suitable for all audiences.
