At a large, tastefully appointed Snedens Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though it's only a flesh wound, Charlie Brock's self-inflicted injury sets off a series of events causing four couples to experience a severe attack of farce. As their tenth wedding annivesary party commences, Charlie lies bleeding in another room, and his wife, Myra, is nowhere in sight. The first guests, lawyer Ken Gorman and his wife, Chris, scamble to get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusion and miscommunictaions mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
