When a plucky community theatre is given the opportunity to produce a royalty free show, they jump at the chance. Little did they know that maddening interference from the author would spin them into a tale of “anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” The show is hilariously amateur and the playwright keeps changing the script only days from its premiere! All of the issues point to disaster when the company performs the show with amusing mishaps at every turn.
