Remember the gas shortage in the mid-1970’s? Arnold Schneiderman does, in fact, he and his wife, Sylvia, live it. Fifty-year-old Arnold owns a Cadillac showroom in New York City. He used to commute daily to his home in the suburbs, but due to the gas shortage, he stays in the city all week long struggling with his failing car business. Sylvia, experiencing a difficult menopause, is stuck at home without gas for her car. All week long she looks forward to Arnold’s home visits and becomes very distressed when he does not give her the attention she craves. When he arrives for Thanksgiving, Sylvia berates him for his lack of passion and insists that they see a sex therapist. They soon discover they are seeing a quack forcing them to solve their own problems. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
