Two couples get together for a weekend. Abby and Wynn are high School friends. Their husbands Max and Roger hate each other. Abby and Wynn are jealous of each other. What could possibly go wrong? Norm Foster brings us another excellent play full of wit and astute observations of human nature, that he recounts for us like only Norm Foster can. Some will be cringing in their seats while simultaneously unable to stop laughing!
