The subject is retroactive jealousy, specifically sexual jealousy. A seemingly happy couple in the Midwest is subjected to severe strain when the wife is left a large gift of money by a notorious womanizer with whom, presumably, she once had a relationship. Will the happy marriage now shatter? Surprises occur, and the play makes a brave (but possibly reckless) attempt to answer Dr. Freud's famous question: "What do women want?" Boy on Blacktop Road and The Stallion Howl may be joined to make a full theatre evening, or may also be performed separately. If together, there is almost a complete overlap of cast.
