In this wild farce, a Wall Street wizard wakes up with a strange woman in a strange bed in a very strange house. The inhabitants have not been out since 1969 when Dad, a former NASA employee, shut his door in reaction to the Vietnam War and other disturbing events. He is raising his kids in the safety of his living room. They live on Tang and Space Food Sticks and consider Walden their bible. Greg is very ready to leave when he is to be Terri Anne's groom - like it or not.

Published in Cross Country: Seven More One Act Plays.

"The most successful play of the evening...a delightfully oddball comedy...witty situations and tongue-in-cheek dialogue." - Backstage
Originally produced by the Cab Theatre Company in New York City, June, 1988.
