In the first scene the wife and her lover plot to murder the husband. In the second scene the wife and her husband reconcile and of course plot to murder the lover. The third scene has the husband and the wife’s lover finally concluding that the wife is the cause of all of this mess and so… they plot to murder the wife. You’ll have to see how it turns out!!!

The Comedy “Baggage” 

A Romantic Comedy written by Sam Bobrick, directed by Joseph Wright.

Courtesy of Samuel French.

Run Dates:  Mar. 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21.

A Mismatched Comedy of Romance.

Run Dates: March 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20 and 21.

Ah, romance! The happy endings: dashed. The class reunion buffets: devastated. The rules: broken. The building staffs: flashed. But let’s face it, who hasn’t accumulated a little baggage by the time they’re 30-something?

With three less-than-stellar relationships behind her, Phyllis Novak decides to turn from The Man Most Likely to The Man Least Objectionable, and to build, if not love, at least tolerable companionship. When an airline luggage snafu is untangled, Bradley Naughton, dumped his ex and so far down there is nowhere to go but up, becomes the man Phyllis is determined to edit to her liking.

Encouraged by serial divorceé and free spirited best friend Mitzi, and discouraged by self-styled relationship guru Dr. Alexander, do Phyllis and Bradley have any hope to get beyond their disappointing pasts and what-can-they-be-thinking present to be, if not in love, at least in like?

Laughs guaranteed, matching luggage optional!
