Marcia Peterson and Mike Buzzeo from Willmar wrote More Tea, a romantic farce that explores the many aspects of the meaning of the word "couple." Paul Schoenack will be the director. American Solutions for Business sponsored this production.

Here is a brief synopsis of the play:

Cyril and Ethel, a married couple, have loaned their life savings to their incompetent son as a down payment on a bed and breakfast.

On the day of the grand opening, there are four very different "couples" who arrive as the first guests - a rich Texan and his gold-digging wife; newlyweds from very different backgrounds; a gay couple who are not fully "out" yet; and the loan shark and his moll, who helped finance the bed and breakfast and who is anxious to recoup his investment.
