Inspired by the playwright's youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, with all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman "Max Prince".

The students of Hilltop High are excited!
They're going to put on a musical of "Romeo and Juliet."
However, the director, Miss Peggy Donahue, pressed into service
by a principal eager to please his superintendent, is horrified.
Twenty years before, when she was a student at Hilltop,
she starred in a disastrous production of Shakespeare's
"Scottish Play," and she believes the curse lingers on.
Sure enough, everything that can go wrong, does.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert,
contemplates his unmarried state.
Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends - "those good and crazy people [his] married
friends" - explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse.
The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant
retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.
