One of Neil Simon's funniest, the play is a riotous romp peopled
with zany comedic characters guaranteed to satisfy the most discriminating
comedy lover. The plot centers around the New York City's deputy
mayor who has accidentally shot himself in the ear (it's only
a flesh wound) and his wife is missing. His lawyer decides a
cover-up is in order, but this becomes increasingly difficult

The tangle web these people weave to hide the truth build to
a hilarious ending of the play. Directed by Judy Krogsgard, the

Ganz; Stephen B. Cefalu as Lenny Ganz; Jill Lane as Cookie Cusack;
