The Bay St. Louis Little Theatre on Friday will open the farcical comedy “Love, Sex, and the IRS” by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore.
The plot features twists of fate, sight gags, mistaken identities and hilarious comic lines.
What happens when two roommates decide to cheat the IRS and cheat each other?
The play takes place in New York where two unemployed, starving musicians try to save money by filling out their tax returns as a married couple.
A visit from a lonely IRS auditor, one musician’s girlfriend, the other musician’s mother and a suspicious landlord, all at once, throw the two guys into a cross-dressing frenzy of cover-ups, half lies, outright lies and a lot of laughs.
“A season seldom goes by that ‘Love, Sex, and the IRS’ doesn’t run somewhere. And for good reason. It convulses the audience! What a hoot!” – Sarasota Herald-Time.
