When world famous portrait artist Bob Zachary plans a romantic evening to propose to April March, he doesn't figure on his plumber chum posing as him to lure a Las Vegas chorine to the house for a tryst, fashion designer Pomona Beaumont showing up seeking her niece debutante who is a client of Bob's, the niece ecstatically thinking that Bob is going to propose to her, a monstrous rejected suitor of April's showing up to wreak vengeance, Gloria's mother arriving to look for the missing Desmond diamonds (which vanished while in the custody of Pomona's long missing daughter Clorinda) or the arrival of the weirdest private detective ever to stride onto a stage with drawn gun and an erroneous notion of who's who and what's what. This show is three acts of nonstop hilarity, a chaotic riot that barely gives audiences time to breathe between guffaws.
