New York City
Rick Jacobs is a playwright with a wild imagination. As he attempts to overcome a massive case of writer’s block, the audience sees four figments of his imagination play out the opening scene of his next murder mystery. He–and they–is/are interrupted by the arrival of his neighbor, Loni, with whom Rick is secretly, and hopelessly, in love. As Rick’s thoughts bounce between his frustrating love life and his play, the real people and the figments of Rick’s imagination clash riotously with the fictional characters in his play.
