Jerome Teppel, a recently married, fairly well-off CPA, discovers that among his wife Francine's monthly purchases was a gun. Shortly after that, Jerome is informed by his neighbor, Lenore Franklin, that his wife and her husband are having a torrid affair. What ensues next is a visit to a private detective, the murder of Anthony with all evidence of his killing pointing to Jerome, several prison breaks and several more murders. A warning to all readers. This is a totally outrageous play and the author will stop at nothing to take the audience on a wild and hilarious ride.
