Abstract:

"At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hit man to kill her, and she must flee for her life- which she does by scrambling out the kitchen window and into the snowy night. She meets and joins up with Lloyd Bophtelophti, a true "original" who has changed his name to avoid alimony payments and who now lives with a paraplegic named Pootie (who also pretends to be deaf to get double disability). Rachel then wins $100,000 on a TV game show and begins a series of picaresque escapades involving numerous psychiatrists and, eventually, an ill-fated reunion with her own child (who fails to recognise her), and is led more and more to ponder whether the modern world might not be a vast conspiracy designed to systematically undermine her own increasingly shaky sanity."-- (Dramatists Play Service catalog 95/96).
