Comedy/ 10 Characters, 7 Women, 3 Men / Full Length, 80 minutes
Synopsis: As a soon-to-be divorcee holds a garage sale, her neighbors gather to help. In the process, their own marriages get the comic once-over. Bernice’s suspicions about her spouse’s faithfulness are driving him batty; Ozzie and Kay seem to have the perfect union — but their friends have yet to learn the story behind it; and Wilma is convinced her late husband has come back as a plant. Throw in a tell-it-like-it-is medium and a raucous seance, and you have a hilarious and telling look at the flip-side of marital bliss.
