This comic farce offers roles for three women and four men. It was given a rave review by ABC 53 (Michigan)- “A smash hit! Two-hours of non-stop laughter. The plot weaves you through mix-ups and mayhem you won’t believe”.
The play can be summarized briefly. Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go! Set in a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet his female accountant, while in the adjoining room next door, two cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s in which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired the hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.
