A Contemporary Farce

Directed By: Bob Gillet
Performed at the
Ellison Center for the Arts in Duxbury:

June 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24, 2000
Four couples arrive at the townhouse of a deputy New York City Mayor and his wife to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. The party never begins because the host has shot himself in the head (it's only a flesh wound) and his wife is missing. His lawyer decides on a cover-up, which gets progressively more difficult to sustain as the other guests arrive and nobody can remember who has been told what about whom. Doors slam and hilarity abounds as the couples get more and more crazed trying to sort things out. (Some adult language)
