“. . . [A] bored housewife who has written a seductive fan letter to her favorite soap opera actor is dumb-founded to find her hero on her doorstep. Once she (and her husband) have recovered from their shock (and her husband has gone bowling) their relationship takes on a hilarious see-saw nature, with the possibility of promised delights left in the balance.
“A trio of delightful, imaginative comedies by one of our theatre’s most talented and resourceful writers. Although the three plays, when presented together, make a cohesive, well-balanced evening, they can be produced separately with equal effectiveness. A simple interior can be modified to serve for all three plays.”
