Linda Shoup, (mid-thirties) a receptionist and Albert Hives (mid-thirties) a CPA, two New York singles who have just met, feel they have been held back by the city.

We follow them as they try to make a go of it in Davenport, Iowa, Los Angeles and then, no longer together, meeting back in New York.

While Linda turns out to be a dynamo with killer instincts, even becoming a major player in the movie business, poor Albert finds himself falling further and further down the ladder of success. Although his love for Linda is overwhelming, Albert slowly comes to realize he is no match for her.

REVIEWS

"Sam Bobrick ...is one of Broadway's most unheralded humorists. However, his plays, which appear to be the stuff of simple-minded sitcom on the surface, have something serious to say about relationships, values and the quality of life... It's a laugh a line". Ursula Albert - The Sun Journal
