All is fair in love? Even murder? That’s the question posed by this funny suspense comedy about a love triangle in a Howard Johnson Motor Inn. 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!!!

Soap opera author Matthew Stoddard has written a screenplay about a terminally ill man who hires a hit man to kill him and then finds out he was misdiagnosed. Matt’s agent and best friend, Greg, thinks the plot is not feasible so Matt contacts a gangster and arranges for an incognito hit man to join them at a dinner party in the country to prove his point. Circumstances place a real hit man among the guests and the action accelerates as they try to find out who it is before the deadline.

Hilarious situations, clever dialogue, intriguing romance and surprise twists make this breezy comedy a delight.

The Comedy “Baggage”

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!

“The show arrives at its final destination intact with plenty of laughs…” –

Rating: All Audiences, mild adult themes.

Written by Sam Bobric, directed by Joseph Wright. Courtesy of Samuel French.
