QUIET ENJOYMENT by Richard Curtis
Today is junior manager Merry Cudlip's first co-op closing, and she's obsessing over every detail. But when Peter Chasen arrives to turn his $5 million co-op over to his ex-wife as part of their divorce settlement, he brings his girlfriend along.
And that's when the paperwork hits the fan.
It's all Merry can do to prevent the proceedings from spinning into oblivion. And her boss is getting very, very cranky.
Oh, and did we tell you -- Peter doesn't have enough money to cover the closing costs!
Running time: 90 minutes.
There is no intermission.
"Richard Curtis's unique sense of humor and wit turns the mundane into the hilarious." - Mara Lieberman, Executive Artistic Director, Bated Breath Theatre Company
