WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Due to financial woes, The Mount Canyon Gynecological Medical Group could go under. In deep debt, Dr. Roe Wade allows a broker to rent two offices, one to a dentist, the other to a pair of plastic surgeons. But! One of those plastic surgeons turns out to be his ex-wife, Marcia, and the dentist is his long-time mistress, Deidre - who, after plastic surgery bears a striking resemblance to Marcia the ex (although she doesn't know it.) Both women expect financial help from Roe: one for alimony, the other to help find her long-lost child. Then Marcia and Roe's son Budd arrives to ask for help to pay for his wedding to Bernadette, a pro-life activist. Budd works hard to prevent his girlfriend from learning about his father's controversial occupation. Add to the mix a wacky receptionist, a forgetful Holocaust survivor and a treasure trove of other characters and you get a colorful blast of mayhem!
