Production à la création:

A New York love triangle showing the extreme lengths men will go to keep their love affairs and pride intact. Tom discovers that his wife, Lucy, is having an affair with a Bohemian artist called Sebastian. He also discovers that Sebastian is advertising for a flatmate to share his loft apartment – so Tom, pretending to be someone called Milo, manages to move in with Sebastian to find out exactly what is going on. Farce ensues when Lucy unexpectedly turns up, forcing Tom to put on a gorilla mask as a disguise. Eventually the truth is revealed, at which point Lucy returns to Tom, impressed by the lengths to which he will go to win her back, and Tom and Sebastian end up as best buddies following their male bonding. (Numerous other parts – a priest, a Mexican cabbie, a maitre d’, an actress and starlet, etc – are played by two characters called “Man” and “Woman”.)
