2 Male 2 Female

Charles, a divorced ex doctor, and Lily, a shy electrologist who's just moved to Los Angeles from Connecticut, find themselves spending Christmas together in Ensenada, Mexico

They wind up in The Flamingo Motel in a room with only one bed. He sits on the bed. She stands. She keeps her panties and bras hidden in a paper bag

After more bungled attempts at connecting, they end up in a bar where they're pounced upon by bored party animals Richard and Cici. He's a cocaine dealer

She's a manicurist

"As eccentric as Champagne's characters are, they assume flesh and blood credibility, endearing charm and affection. . . . It's a lovely experience, enriched by that greatest quality the theater can offer an audience joy" ~ Downtown News

"This show is touching and funny and true; it's a gem" ~ L.A. Weekly
