The Crazy Time

A Comedy

By Sam Bobrick

Two Acts

One Set – An ultra modern living room

5 Characters – 3 male, 2 female

At the start of the play Miles Gladstone, a man in his mid-fifties seems to have it all. A trophy wife, a successful business, a happily married daughter and then life steps in. His trophy wife leaves him, his partner screws him out of the business, his daughter's marriage shows signs of crumbling and to make matters worse, his ex-wife who stood by his side no matter what, and whom he now has thoughts about returning to, has had a complete makeover and is dating someone half her age. Does everything eventually work out happily ever after? Unfortunately in this particular play, not if you're a guy.
