America’s premier comic playwright, Neil Simon, makes another hilarious foray into the world of modern relationships. Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis. Prompted into both real and imagined conversations with the ladies in his life, Jake finds the wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks playing in his mind are occasionally interrupted by visitations from actual females. Hoping to find a way to save his marriage, Jake matches wits with the revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, the second wife who may be leaving him for another man, the grown daughter he recalls as a child, the boisterous and bossy sister who can’t help but meddle, the opinionated analyst with her own relationship issues, and even a prospective third wife. Sweet and spunky, a affectionate and antagonistic, Jake’s women propel him down a path of self-refection both witty and wise.
