The three short comedies in this collection were all originally written as part of 24 Hour Plays On Broadway

Described by The New York Post as "the equivalent of a high-wire act without a net," the 24 Hour Plays is an annual benefit in which several one acts are written, cast, directed and performed on Broadway in less than a day

The three plays are ...

Crazy Eights - When Connie comes home late one night, she finds her parole officer waiting in her apartment with a torte and a long list of questions

The interrogation/courting dance that follows is complicated by the after-hours arrival of Connie's charming card-playing buddy (2 men, 1 woman)

Baby Food - a contemporary comedy about an off-kilter couple desperately searching for godparents for their newborn infant. Little do they know that the friends they've chosen are less than adventurous diners and on the verge of a divorce (2 men, 2 women)

That Other Person - Tonight is the night Ginge and Kevin are going to tell their respective spouses the marriage-shattering secret they've been keeping from everyone

But their bomb shell gets put on the back burner when a gorgeous peeping-tom, with secrets of her own, falls in the pool and nearly drowns (2 men, 3 women)

REVIEWS

"Astute and eye-opening! Lindsay-Abaire, who knows a good eccentric when he sees one, has something to say about unpredictable attractions between the sexes, and he says it with his usual cleverness and compassion for everyday nutzos" ~ TheaterMania
