Play Synopsis

Middle-aged and married, overworked and overweight, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late and arranges three seductions: the first, Elaine Navazio proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a 20-ish actress who’s too kooky by half; finally comes September and Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend.

The Characters – Casting 1m, 3f

BARNEY CASHMAN, a forty-seven-year-old owner of a seafood restaurant who is afraid that the sexual revolution of the 1960’s is passing him by.

ELAINE NAVAZIO, a somewhat coarse woman in her late thirties who believes, when she accepts Barney’s invitation to meet him at his mother’s apartment, that he wants only a quick sexual encounter. 

BOBBI MICHELE, a twenty-seven-year-old unemployed entertainer who visits Barney to repay twenty dollars that he loaned to her to pay an accompanist who assisted her during an audition.

JEANETTE FISHER, a contemporary of Barney and a family friend, a very depressed lady who has decided to repay her husband’s confession of infidelity by having an affair with Barney.

Jeremy and Celia return a week early from their unsuccessful honeymoon to find that both Jeremy’s partners have accepted his offer to stay in his house while he is away. The only problem is that they have each brought the other’s wife with them. Jeremy discovers one illicit couple, Celia the other. Both issue invitations to them for dinner. Complications pile up thick and fast as, realizing their dilemma and desperate to make a good impression on Jeremy’s colleagues, the couple stages two dinner parties simultaneously, one on the patio and one in the dining room. As if there aren’t problems enough, Sid the plumber, up to his eyeballs in water in the cellar, has to call in the Water Board Emergency Service just when all seems resolved and Jeremy and Celia are attempting to salvage their lost honeymoon.
