Landlord Higgins raises the rent in pensioner Barney Walden’s apartment building again! The reasonable response: Barney stops paying rent! When Katherine (Kate), a retired school teacher who lives upstairs, stops in with her petition to force Higgins to repair the building, Barney ends up smitten and she seems willing enough to accept a dinner late—If he can only keep himself and his colorful pals Max and Boris from scaring her off. On the threat of being evicted, Barney coaxes his new love into an even more frightening position: playing the key role in an elaborate real estate scheme designed to bring Higgins to his knees. After all, Higgins has never met Kate, so all she has to do is pretend to be a potential buyer of the property with a caveat that all the repairs are completed before the deal is done. She’ll use an exotic fake name and after the building is repaired, “Madeleine Beatrice-Billingbrook would simply disappear…Except Higgins signs the agreement and in a panic, Kate can’t remember the fake name and signs her real name! If only her estranged daughter Susan can quell the chaos before Kate gets hauled off to jail. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
