An outrageous farce
by Neil Simon

July 13 – November 2

Sharp-edged wit meets madcap farce in this laugh-out-loud comedy from legendary playwright Neil Simon. When the first guests arrive for an anniversary party at the deputy mayor’s home, they find their host unconscious, his wife and staff missing, and the duck is still thawing on the counter! Fearing a scandal, his friends attempt a cover-up. But as more partygoers arrive, everyone gets tangled in a web of mayhem, misunderstandings…and rumors!
