Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival

This play draws laughs like the Abbott and Costello classic Who's on First? An attractive woman announces to a receptionist that she is her husband's mistress. The receptionist is not married, but her brother does have the same name as the husband in question, and the receptionist has the same name as her sister-in-law. In fact, this large family has many identical names. The more questions the mistress asks, the more bewildered she becomes. 

Part of our Off-Off Broadway Festival: Nineteenth Series

SHEILA O'KEEFE...........Lauren Simpson
