    John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980 in front of his home, the Dakota. The following day, New Yorkers gathered in spontaneous vigils to mourn and pay tribute. McLure builds his play from the interactions of strangers, at times humorous, moving, or even menacing, as they struggle to understand the larger significance of the event.

Charlotte, an aging leading lady and George, a megalomaniac & often drunk leading man, are on tour in Buffalo in 1953. Fate has given these thespians one more shot at starring roles in "The Scarlet Pimpernel" epic and director Frank Capra himself is en route to catch their matinee performance. Will Charlotte appear, or run off with their agent, who has always loved her? Will George be sober enough to stand and move straight, much less emote? Hilarious misunderstandings pile on madcap misadventures, all of which are magnified by their daughter, who is trying to escape the theatre life, but tries to keep the show together, and Charlotte's deaf mother who is the costumer and manages the theatre. Stuffed with comic invention, running gags and a superb sense of absurdity, this is truly a love-letter to live theatre.
