Synopsis

The play takes place in the hotel room of Miss Livingston prior to the opening of a new play and follows a truck-driver-turned-playwright watching his first play being produced in Boston. This backstage comedy features the grandly temperamental leading lady; her sarcastic, gin rummy playing mother; the flamboyant director; the lowbrow producer; and his ice-skating, wisecracking wife. The opening night seems to go awry and the producer, cast, etc, believe it is a flop and turn against themselves, the producer and the author. However, when it turns out that the reviews are favorable, the tables are turned.
