Lovers and Other Strangers - Five Comedies


Renee Taylor & Joseph Bologna

Published by Samuel French Inc

5 Male 5 Female

Critics had a hard time figuring out which of these four comedies about the superiority of women is funniest

The first introduces a young man who starts to seduce a lady, only to have the tables turned on him

The second involves a married couple who can't figure out whose turn it is to commence love making

The third opens in a girl's apartment at 4 a.m. when her fiance arrives to tell her he is a nervous wreck and can't go through with the wedding. She gently leads the way back to the wedding route

In the last, a couple who have fought for over thirty years try to save their son's marriage by confessing their own failings

"A lot of smiles as well as genuine belly laughs" ~ NY Times

"Realistic and observant ... Sketch[es] a character with a few strokes" ~ NY Post

"Very funny and engaging" ~ Wall Street Journal
