Approximate Playing Time: 110 minutes

When Arthur, the quick-witted author and widower of three years, reunites unexpectedly with his old flame, Doreen – or was that her identical twin sister, Denise? – the sparks quickly reignite despite some forty-plus years in passing. Over the next few months, Doreen flies back and forth from her home in California to Arthur’s Long Island condo until a morning shower proposal forces Doreen to decide if she really wants to go down that road again. After all, Arthur, who refuses to fly, has never even met the rest of her family. When Arthur’s assistant, Lorin, implies that he and Arthur are lovers, Doreen high-tails it back to California with an overdosed Arthur in pursuit who mistakes the phone-sex Denise for Doreen and Denise’s young amour Eric for Doreen’s lover. There’s more to resolve than who’s who including, on the serious side, the truth behind Arthur’s gay son’s death and perhaps not so serious—who gets to keep Eric—Denise or Lorin? Some things get better with age. Nothing gets easier…not even love…but sometimes it gets a whole lot funnier! $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
