Check this out!

A very good friend to our department, Mike Stephens, is directing a hilarious show coming up very soon. This plays also features a current McMurry theatre student, and promises to entertain! 

 January 19-21, 26-28, February 3 & 4

Here is a wild farce with twists of fate, sight gags, mistaken identities and hilarious comic lines. Two guys, Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur, are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the "couple" they're going to be investigated by a Mr. Spinner. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancee, Kate. Complicating matters further Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back, Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancee, and Leslie's ex girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore.
