Mrs. Stancliffe's Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years. Her Guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her next door neighbor, the elderly, silver-tongued, Bud "Bud the Stud" Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons. The prim and proper Mrs. Stancliffe steadfastly denies this, but really doesn't do anything to prevent it. She reluctantly accepts the fact that "Bud the Stud" is, in fact, good for business. Her other neighbor and would-be suitor Henry Mitchell is a retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called "Venusia," after Venus the goddess of love, to increase the libido of menopausal women. The pill has not been tested.

Add to the guest list three older women: Victoria Ambrose, a romance novelist whose personal life seems to be lacking in romance; Hillary Hudson a friend of Henry's who has agreed to test the Venusia: and Charmaine Beauregard, a "Southern Belle" whose libido does not need to be increased! Bud gets his hands on some of the Venusia pills and the fun begins, as he attempts to entertain all three women! The women mix up Bud's Viagra pills with the Venusia, and we soon discover that it has a strange effect on men: it gives them all the symptoms of menopausal women, complete with hot flashes, mood swings, weeping and irritability! When the mayhem settles down, all the women find their lives moving in new and surprising directions.

No Chorus

BUD DAVIS: Male, 70+ (Range: G2-Eb4)
The next-door neighbor to Mrs. Stancliffes' Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; weak, frail looking (the frailer the better), however, over the years, he has become renowned among the female guests as "Bud the Stud;" very elderly, somewhat infirm, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable 

MRS. STANCLIFFE: Female, 60 +(Range G3-E5)
The owner of Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; a severe woman both in dress and manner; pursued by her next door neighbor, Henry; sensible, practical, punctual, business like, menopausal, but finally radiant and sensuous

HENRY MITCHELL: Male, 60+ (Range: Bb2-A4)
A retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe's "Gentleman Caller;" a mild mannered man who has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for twenty years; has developed Venusia; eventually comes out of his shell

VICTORIA AMBROSE: Female, 50+ (Range: E3-F5)
A renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels; pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none; readily joins the plot to turn "Bud the Stud" into "Bud the Dud;" pretty, serious, intelligent, menopausal

HILLARY HUDSON: Female, 50+ (Range: F3-Eb5)
A beautiful, well educated, articulate, and sophisticated in both manner and dress; old friend and co-worker of Henry's, who agrees to test the Venusia pills; elegant, charming, and menopausal

CHARMAINE BEAUREGARD: Female, 50+ (Range: A3-E5)
The quintessential southern belle; definitely here at Rose Cottage for Bud and becomes the leading light in the plot to tame him; voluptuous, out-going, gushing, demonstrative, menopausal
