Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a reserved, straight-laced lawyer and she’s a spontaneous, optimistic free spirit who wishes he would just lighten up. Their new apartment – her discovery – is too expensive with little room, bad plumbing, no heat, and a broken skylight – and it’s six flights up. When they get a surprise visit from Corie’s conservative mother, Corie decides to play matchmaker during dinner with their cultured, eccentric neighbor-in-the-attic Victor Velasco, and everything that can go wrong does.

Featured in the cast are Devon Ford as Corie Bratter, Luke Dougherty as Paul Bratter, Bobette Roberson as Mother, Ken Schroeder as Victor Velasco, Gary Talsky as the Telephone Repairman and Chris Kelly as the Delivery Man.

Production staff includes director Larry Kelsey, producer Ellen Marincic, assistant director Nathan Nosalik, stage manager Ella Johns, set designer Glen Gerrard, set builders and decorators too numerous to mention, lighting designer and light operator Yvette Lucas, sound operator Fred Davis, costumers Vicky Bickel and Michelle Hainline, prop coordinator Michelle Wade and stage crew Dixie Schroeder and Ellen Marincic.
