At a large, tastefully-appointed townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples gathering to celebrate the mayor's wedding anniversary are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. As the host lies bleeding in the other room, with his wife nowhere in sight, his lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
“Has nothing on its mind except making the audience laugh.” – The New York Times
