Set Requirements: Interior

Produced in New York City. Three young men and three young women share an apartment in all innocence; they are would be stage folk and they are doing this for economic security. Their apartment is immediately above that of a Broadway producer who is about to cast a road company. They rehearse the play but how can they get him upstairs to see it? It happens that the producer is an amateur chef and, right in the middle of a culinary concoction, he runs out of flour. He comes upstairs to borrow a cup. At last the kids have him and they aren't going to let him go until he sees some evidence of their ability so they stage a murder. It is so realistic that police swarm into the scene with hilarious results.

this is a most excellent show and a wonderful production to be a part of. I played Marge in one production, and know that the whole cast enjoyed the story of the six house mates' attempt to make it big on Broadway! The characters are fun, deep, and have such diverse parts within their community of the apartment. a true joy to be a part of.
