About the Play
A middle-aged tailor indulges in daydreams to escape his hum-drum existence, but
his suspicious wife believes he is fantasizing about a sexy, widowed friend and
enlists the friend's help in testing his fidelity.  The trick backfires when he sets out
to avenge his humiliation, leading to an escalation of flirtations by both man and
wife, witnessed by their increasingly scandalized daughter and her boyfriend.  A
middle-aged widower gets drawn into the pseudo-adulterous charade while
seeking a romance of his own.
This is an adult comedy based on the riddles of mid-life crises and budding love.  
Athough it would not appeal to children, the script does not use salacious
language or depict sexual situations.  It's a fresh look at married life with six
delightful characters, and will have audiences laughing from beginning to end at
the
world premiere of this brand-new play.
