About the Play
This comedy concerns Barney Cashman, the owner of successful seafood restaurant who is stuck in the depths of a mid-life crisis. Barney’s marriage is no longer providing him with a sense of romantic adventure, and when he discovers his mother’s apartment is empty one day a week, he decides that a series of extra-marital affairs is just what he needs. However, Barney’s career as a spoiler of women quickly proves to be laughably unsuccessful; he’s able to lure three different women to his make-shift love nest — Elaine, Bobbi, and Janette — but try as he might, he can’t convince any of them to sleep with him, and in the end, Barney has to settle for seducing his wife.
