Collapse with laughter at this fast-paced farce
Vivien Bliss, romantic and virginal, intends to remedy a significant part of that condition during a weekend spent in the apartment of Edgar Chisholm. She is a writer of Harlequin romances, he is the bored spouse of Doris, a successful syndicated advice columnist. Difficulties begin when Doris decides to cancel her out-of-town trip and stay home with her husband, a plan that is discovered by the two would-be paramours only after Vivien is down to her baby-dolls. The confusion grows with the introduction of Bill Scant, a henpecked husband seeking an emergency consultation with Doris. Then there’s Peggy Scant, who believes Bill to be her older brother, but who is actually his and Doris’…. oh well, never mind now, because you’re going to be caught up in one of the funniest Canadian farces ever. Identity crises arise, doors open and slam shut in exquisite timing, and Vivien decides to take her next Nurse Jane novel to Hawaii and everybody ends up going along until we’re out of breath – roaring with laughter.
