Auditions will consist of cold readings from the play.

*Please note we are a community theatre group and all parts are volunteer.*

Joan Scheller lives with the great love of her life, Sandy. In an effort to hide their relationship from her overbearing sister-in-law, the former movie star Olivia St. Claire, she introduces him as her psychiatrist. One little white lie leads to another. Before long, Vinny the Enforcer, a quintessential Italian mobster, masquerades as her security guard, while her son Chris, is forced to wear a dress and become her daughter Christina.

Further complications occur when her new neighbour, Rachael, whose life appears to be a series of catastrophes, creates chaos and confusion wherever she goes.

“The Doctor” is in. Has Joan created a monster? Everyone wants a session. Olivia wants to discuss her love life, Rachael wants to know why she’s such a disaster and Vinny wants to discuss his work as an “Enforcer”. Sandy is forced to listen and give misguided advice, which, to everyone’s surprise, seems to work.

But what about love? Of course there’s Joan and Sandy, if they can survive Joan’s white lies; then there’s Rachael, who is strongly attracted to Chris, if he can survive her mayhem. Finally there’s Olivia, who hires Vinny away from the mob to be her personal security guard (with benefits?).
