By Sam Bobrick

2 Acts

The Set — The play has no formal set and is done with appropriate lighting and the minimum of furniture.

4 Characters — 2 men, 2 women

Jerome Teppel, a recently married, fairly well off CPA, discovers that among his wife, Francine's monthly purchases was a gun. Shortly after he is informed by his neighbor, Lenore Franklin, that her husband, Anthony and Francine are having a torrid affair. What ensues next is a visit to a private detective, the murder of Anthony with all evidence of his killing pointing to Jerome, several prison breaks and several more murders. A warning to all readers. This is a totally outrageous play and the author will stop at nothing to take the audience on a wild and hilarious ride.


JEROME TEPPEL — A CPA in his late thirties

FRANCINE TEPPEL — Jerome's wife in her late twenties

LEONORE FRANKLIN — The Teppel's next door neighbor in her early thirties

SID DECKER — A very seedy private detective in his forties
