Here is a brief synopsis of the show:
Ronald Schmidt has left his bride at the altar to attend an urgent meeting at Dr. Shaw’s office.
Diana Henderson has left her groom at the altar to attend the same meeting.
Both hope it’s about inheriting the late doctor’s fortune, but all that the two strangers find are Shaw’s ashes in an urn and Shaw’s assistant.
To qualify for their legacy, the assistant tells the pair they must be handcuffed together for 24 hours.
Once alone, they argue, then kiss and eventually break the handcuffs.
The assistant then returns with the jilted bride and groom who were left at the respective altars. Laughs abound as the couples confront each other.
The hour-long production begs the question, “Are marriages actually made – or arranged – in heaven?”
