2 Male 5 Female

Reed Dolan would seem to be living in the best of all possible worlds: he is young, attractive and a professor of drama at a small college teeming with toothsome coeds anxious for good grades.

And in (a) the unexpected arrival of an irate father who intends to shoot his daughter's seducer, and (b) the sudden reappearance of a former student who brings along her young son, claiming that Reed is the father, and the stage is set for the wildly funny finale - with Reed's desperately devious (and hilarious) alibis growing ever more outrageous as he attempts to side-step what, for a less resourceful liar, would be pure and inescapable disaster.
