Click to enlarge Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake’s women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.

David Britt returns to direct this moving comedy. Damian Garrod makes his Workshop Theatre debut in the role of Jake. Workshop veterans Lou Boeschen, H. Loretta Brown, Riley Campbell, and Raelyn O’Briant are joined by Jennifer O’Briant, Melissa Frierson, and Dee Renko in the roles of Jake’s women.
