New York City
Margaret and Stanley Locker and their friends, Donna and Walter Pace, are frequent theatre-goers who lack theatre etiquette. Even getting seated causes a stir. This week, they are attending a production of Hamlet, but instead of enjoying the play, they cannot seem to stop talking about themselves, their children, a dead friend and every once in a while, the play they paid money to see. As they chatter, gossip, and reveal secrets, the audience will begin to wonder if their relationships will survive their night at the theatre.
