In the middle of a howling snowstorm in Kansas, a bus pulls up
at a roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a chanteuse in a sparkling gown and a seedy fur- trimmed jacket, is the passenger with most to worry about. She's been pursued, and finally kidnapped by a belligerent cowboy, Bo, with a Montana ranch of his own and the romantic methods of an unusually headstrong bull. Virgil, the older cowboy traveling with Bo, tries to keep him in check. As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver at last find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-aged scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pete and George are old friends. In fact, such good
old friends that George has been Pete’s best man at both of his weddings. Pete, now happily married to Sarah, is appalled when George arrives with the news that his first wife Jessica was not killed in a climbing accident as they had thought but is alive and well and keen to resume her life with Pete! This unexpected revelation leads to a series of hilarious situations as Peter and George try to find a way out of this desperate plight without upsetting either of Pete’s wives or his second wife’s powerful mother. Another riotous comedy from the author of Beyond a Joke, Look Who’s Talking and Bedside Manners.

Psychiatrist Victor is financially pressed between the rental
of his posh office apartment and his fiancee's expensive tastes. A colleague has written a best selling case history book and is now rolling in royalties. Good friend Parker has rejected Victor's similar work because the public is tired of such things preferring torrid fiction. Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to love frustration, is grinding out a rip roaring sex life. By mistake, Victor’s nurse gives the patient's manuscript to Parker, believing it to be Victor's work. Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection and a potential Pulitzer prize. When he discovers it’s his patient's confidences and not his casebook that have saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter. A fast paced, zany comedy.

Sara Hastings is an unmarried lawyer in her mid-thirties, much too busy to get involved in any romance. Her Aunt Martha has decided to take matters into her own hands and find her a husband. Unfortunately, Aunt Martha’s method of doing it amounts to having the prospective groom bopped over the head and brought to Sara’s apartment. Aunt Martha’s choice is Brandon Cates, a young man who handles her finances. Although Brandon is already engaged to be mar ried, this does not deter Aunt Martha. After being bopped on the head a few times, having a temporary loss of memory and experiencing several instances of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and a confrontation with a very angry fiancĂ©, Brandon slowly comes to realize that Sara is really the girl for him. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Leading Ladies, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club, including the heated rivalry between the heads of the Quail Valley Club, and the Crouching Squirrel Golf and Racquet Club, who are fighting over a golfer they both want to make them the winner in the annual golf tournament. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. This is a wonderfully manic satire not just of the golf world, but of human nature...full of the idiosyncrasies that are hidden, just barely, inside us all. “A belly laugh marathon! An amazingly ingenious satirical farce.”−

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, meet every August to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The story covers four of these weekends, spanning a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. This is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
