SYNOPSIS: This play is actually four plays in one, unconnected in most ways except they all include innocent discussions about sex or nudity, which is not the point of any of them.

1. THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION. A theatre producer objects to a playwright's insisting that nudity is included in his next play. Side-splitting humor.

2. THE FOOTSTEPS OF DOVES. In a furniture store, a middle-age couple disagree on whether they should replace their old bed with one large bed or two single beds. Moving and funny.

3. I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS. Edith, who is concerned about her daughter, who is soon leaving for college, can't understand why her husband came home early and is in a strange mood. Bring the Kleenex.

4. I'M HERBERT. A couple, Herbert and Muriel, are in their 70s, and are both somewhat confused regarding their own names and their past marriages. Very funny, unless you're in your 70s.

AUDITIONS will consist of cold readings from the script.

REHEARSALS will begin in January. Approximate dates and times will be announced at auditions.
