Scruples takes place in the waiting room of a huge casting office where three young women, Lois, Marti, and Jane anxiously await their final callback for a commercial advertising sexy pantyhose. A tense argument ensues between the women until the extravagant executive, Mrs. Dobbs, strides in and prepares the actresses for their audition.
Scruples premiered at the Actors Theatre of Louisville on December 11, 1989 under the direction of Bob Krakower.
