A Not Too Naughty Comedy

5W / 3M

Approximate Playing Time: 2 hours

This risible romp centers on sex and sensibilities, marital mix-ups, high spirits and moral values. Lew Riley’s madcap script follows a contemporary Everyman, George Wells, through his 20th year of marriage and midlife crisis. His attempts to convince his wife, Claire to join swingers Gretchen and Darrin Devereaux in some extra-marital exploits is complicated by the arrival of the Wells’ son, college freshman Todd and his new girlfriend, Joyce – who happens to be at least ten years older than him – along with Todd’s high school sweetheart, Jenny, and the Bible wielding lush, Florence, from next door. But when George finally gets the opportunity to fulfill his lusty fantasies is he really ready to jump head over heels into the sofa bed? And who are all those people hiding in the closet? What was “it” that Claire and Darrin did? And what exactly are Lustcuffs? If you’ve never played a game of strip trivia, you’ll definitely want to play “Married Not Buried” on your stage! It’s naughty without going too far just like the Wells when their fidelity is put to the test. $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
