Rob’s wife picked the most inconvenient moment to come home from a business trip. While strains of Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers play, Betty finds him wearing a tube top and awkwardly canoodling with an inflatable doll. She assumes the worst and turns to her sister-in-law, Cheryl, for comfort while his brother, Greg, comes over to set him straight. The resulting hilarious fallout brings two brothers and two couples closer together…and tattooed!

What could easily be a simple dumb sex farce instead becomes an entertaining character-driven ensemble comedy piece. Wilmot’s script is funny above all, but also perceptive, pointed, and, on occasion, even insightful.

Presented by special arrangement with Michael G. Wilmont
