An embittered woman, challenged by past family relationships takes her elderly, confused father to the Emergency Room of a hospital in hopes of having him admitted and declared incompetent. She gets more than she bargained for when faced with a long wait, the arrival of her estranged daughter along with an ill psychiatrist and suicidal young man. As the group waits together they learn that assumptions and the stories we tell ourselves are not exactly how things are.
Fred is a faithful, honest guy who just wants to get married and settle down. Since his TWO girlfriends are almost perfect, he turn to his neurotic friend Henry for advice. If only he can only figure out which woman has the qualities he is looking for ... WITHOUT the women finding out about one another!
On the surface it seems that Mary and Brian Hanson, have what appears to be a very comfortable marriage. But though content, the marriage has grown tired. And then one morning, their lives are turned upside down when Mary’s lost love, Peter, shows up... or does he? Although Peter professes his undying love and devotion, he turns out to simply be Mary’s fantasy. But fantasy or not, that doesn’t keep Brian from going into a jealous rage. Brian tries everything to shake Mary back to her senses, even going as far as hiring Tori, in hopes of making Mary jealous. Things get even more complicated when the real Peter actually shows up.

This play is widely accepted as the best dramatization of Jane Austen's enchanting book. Five daughters to marry off! Was ever a mother as put upon as Mrs. Bennet? Jane falls deeply in love with the wealthy Mr. Bingley, and it looks as if a romance is possible between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy is a proud young man, and is shocked by Mama's vulgar match-making. He not only leaves for London, but takes Mr. Bingley with him! Jane is heartbroken. Finally Mr. Darcy comes back to propose to Elizabeth "against his better judgment." She promptly tells him "No!" and berates him for taking Mr. Bingley away and hurting Jane. But the attraction between Elizabeth and Darcy triumphs over the pride of one and the prejudice of the other, and both couples are reunited. Mrs. Bennet is delighted!"
