Comedy by Lynda Martens
After years together, Walter and Vicky's marriage is feeling a bit dusty. From yoga to exotic vacations, the pair is desperately seeking the flint needed to reignite their spark. In the meantime, former stay-at-home mom Vicky decides to start a business, and takes on a business partner, Fred. Fred and his wife, Sally, are a seemingly like-minded couple, so Vicky invites them to dinner, where a hilarious misunderstanding teaches them that, sometimes, you may not know a co-worker as well as you think you do. Please note: This show contains sexual references and is not appropriate for young audiences.

He begrudgingly agrees, but during the meeting between Herb and Bruce, Bruce spontaneously collapses into a coma, leaving Herb to defend Bruce’s ‘wishes’ and keep the medical ‘idiots’ from pulling the plug by caring for Bruce in his own home.

Comedy by Londos D’Arrigo - A Dramatists’ Guild Production
Forty years ago, Harris Wellborn wrote an off-Broadway musical which infamously closed after just one performance. We find the now-elderly tunesmith down on his luck, living in a run-down apartment building dependent on the charity of his domineering sister- yet still dreaming of making it on Broadway. The laughs unfold when the witty Harris is thrown together with the flaky young woman and her scheming boyfriend who live down the hall. Thanks to the magic of the internet, Wellborn’s life takes a hilarious and unexpected turn when his neighbors come up with a devious plan to cash in on Harris’ past.
