Interior Set

First produced at the Pheasant Run Playhouse in Chicago, with Phyllis Diller featured as Madeline Basset, the action takes place in a two story residence in suburban New York. The play concerns the two Bassett sisters, Gertrude is prudish, capable and hardworking, says only "Oh, fudge", when she's upset. Madeline is completely dependent on her sloppy, fat cunning, and sounds like a plumber who has lost his number four wrench the perfect role for Phyllis Diller? When Gertrude decides to marry, leaving Madeline to fend for herself, the situation becomes traumatic. In an attempt to break up Gertrude's romance, Madeline runs the gamut, making obscene telephone calls to the bridegroom's 80 year old lush of a mother; outrageously insulting the groom to be, sneaking off to New York to trip on LSD, and finally sneaking back home to live in the attic and sulk. When all efforts fail, she feigns a stroke.
