“Angela Harris woke up this morning after a night of bliss with her beloved partner, Geoff. But Geoff is definitely not himself this morning; in point of fact, we are not quite sure who he is, or whether he is actually a ‘he’ at all. Perhaps Doctor Keiron Foster, psychologist, hypnotist and expert on out-of-body experiences will be able to help. Perhaps he will be able to persuade the real Geoff to come back from wherever he is. Perhaps, he will succeed in the uniting of the distraught Angela with her loved one. And perhaps, he will be able to tell . . . what the heck Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne are doing in this story.
“This is a comedy for all those who ever wondered about the joys and perils of astral travel.”
