The Folks Next Door: A Comedy in Three Acts
"Chet Roberts has had it. He's tired of dirty air, crime in the streets and pollution under his nose in short, everyday living in the city. He moves his family to a deserted California beach city to start a new life as a writer. Imagine his alarm when he learns the only house in the area has been bought by the President as a summer White House. There goes Chet's peace, quiet and yes, the neighborhood. Chet battles with the Secret Service, nosy tourists and his family and a certain dictator from "over there." Incidents pitting the common man against red tape are hilarious. When the summer ends and the President and his entourage leave, Chet realizes the experience will make a great novel. This is an ideal play for summer stock, dinner and community theaters."--Publisher's description.
