Synopsis: At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
Chris Gorman (Female, 30s): A successful contract lawyer, married to Ken. She is a bit nervous and high strung.
Ken Gorman (Male, 30s): A successful attorney, married to Chris. He is a natural leader: confident, cool and collected.
Claire Ganz (Female, 30s): Wife of Lenny. Beautiful and sophisticated, she is also gossipy and a little bitchy. A "Real Housewives" type.
Lenny Ganz (Male, 30s-40s): A wealthy and successful financier, married to Claire. He has a hot temper and is currently suffering from a case of whiplash.
Ernie Cusack (Male, 40s-50s): A successful psychologist married to Cookie. He is jovial, good natured, and well-liked.
Cookie Cusack (Female, 40s-50s): A successful host of a television cooking show, married to Ernie. She is a perennial oddball who suffers from chronic back spasms.
Glenn Cooper (Male, 30s): A politician currently in a campaign for New York State Senate, married to Cassie. He is the consummate politician; even keeled and careful.
Cassie Cooper (Female, 20s): The trophy wife, married to Glenn. Beautiful and elegant, she is an emotionally unstable train wreck dabbling in New Age Religion.
Officer Welch (Male, 30s-40s): A hardened police officer on the beat. The curmudgeon.
Officer Pudney (Female, 20s-30s): A police officer. The newbie.
