It’s the world premiere of renowned playwright Jerry Mayer's 10th play, reuniting Mayer with acclaimed veteran (and frequent Mayer) director Chris DeCarlo - schadenfreude at its finest as you gleefully enjoy other people's mistakes (all of them all too true).

Dick's mistake: He let a sexy, blue-eyed winker threaten his marriage. Jeff's mistake: He turned down a dream job, then later, screamed, "You idiot!" Mel's mistake: He hired a famous money manager, now famous for stealing money. Dick's wife's mistake: She trusted him, then learned of his affair and had one too. NOBODY'S PERFECT! But mistakes can be fixed, between husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, fathers and sons. This world premiere comedy will have you laughing, crying, and racing to fix that one mistake that's been gnawing at you for years!

"Chris DeCarlo is a masterful director!" Theatre Scene

Says DeCarlo, "Jerry Mayer's plays are a delight for a director, a cast and of course, an audience, touching on issues to which we can all relate - love, romance, marriage, financial woes, parents, infidelity, aging, and friendship. Experiencing a Jerry Mayer play brings us that much closer to the realization that no matter how serious life may appear, someone is always laughing. It might as well be us."
