Girls’ Weekend

4 Male, 4 Female

Karen Schaeffer Price: $9.99

In this lightning-quick farce, four women travel to Dot’s Northwoods cabin to consume copious amounts of wine, laugh at their lives, trade stories and chat about their book club’s latest selection

However, after the third case of wine comes through the door, it becomes clear there will be more stewing than reviewing

Carol - who is monitoring her temperature for the best “window of opportunity” to get pregnant - gets a ride to the cabin from her husband Rick

Rick is hoping the “time is right” for a quick tryst

Instead, Carol sends him home, frustrated, in a snowstorm - only to discover that her temperature shows she IS ready

So she calls him to drive back and hide out in a shed until she can sneak him in with a special porch-light signal

Meanwhile recently widowed Meg is having a secret affair with Dot’s son - only to find he has shown up at the cabin unexpectedly and wants to further their relationship in stealth

Meg sends him to hide in a boathouse until he sees her special porch-light signal and the coast is clear to rejoin her in the cabin

Meanwhile Ellie- the youngest and Meg’s daughter - would rather not be a part of the weekend with her “elders”

So she meets up with a young townie and invites him to hide out in the barn

The only obstacle to each of the ladies’ secret endeavors is Dot, who wants to stay up all night and party with the girls

So they make sure they ply her with plenty of party favors, causing Dot to pass out

The ladies now move Dot’s lifeless body from floor to closet to room, as the bottles tip up, the secrets spill out

And the men sneak in ...

The madcap, door-slamming chaos finally comes to a head when Dot wakes up and discovers her girls’ weekend is full of men!
