Harold (m), middle-aged, short, balding; Officer Buckley (m), __, policeman, rather slow witted; Lucille (f), middle-aged, slightly overweight, somewhat taller than her husband Harold; Florence (f)middle-aged, spinster, prone to gossip, addicted to television.
A wild comedy with serious undertones. It involves Harold and Lucille, a bored, middle aged couple; Florence, a spinster and neighbor; and Buckley, a confused policeman. Harold shoots himself and Lucille's upset over the scandal. Florence complains to Buckley about the noise. All four are in Harold and Lucille's living room when Harold suddenly jumps up (the suicide was faked) and threatens to blow up the building with a bomb (also a fake). From then on confusion and chaos reign. Thoroughly confused Florence and Buckley finally leave and Harold and Lucille resume their bored lives.--http://www.samuelfrench.com/store/product_info.php/products_id/3787
