This cleverly constructed comedy about the never ending war between the sexes centers around a restaurant owner and his best friend. Vinnie and Patsy like to sit around talking about women and about life in general. A favorite topic is the restaurant dishwasher's gorgeous wife. Vinnie can't understand how a nobody like Pipino can have such a wife. In fact, he doesn't understand why women won't give him the time of day, especially tough as nails Lorraine whose friend Rita dates Patsy. Patsy decides he can find success selling shoes on the street and he proposes to Rita. Their wedding is disrupted by a gun welding Lorraine who rescues Rita from the altar, leaving Vinnie and Patsy to speculate and commiserate again about the mysteries of women. Note: This play contains some wonderful monologue and scene material, much of which has been anthologized elsewhere.
"Mr. Kass spins out his tale in a series of quick scenes that begin plausibly enough and then take almost surreal twists. The dialogue is mostly sharp and witty, nearly Mametesque at times." - N.Y. Times.
"A very funny play. . . . I believe you'll be a happier and better person if you see Lusting After Pipino's Wife." - N.Y. Post.
