Synopsis: The wealthy owner of a 200,000 acre Texas each has died. His butler, Jarvis, an alluring maid, the rancher's niece his only living relative and her husband are gathered for the reading of the will. Oddly, Miss Tammy Jo Harper, a neighbor, has also been invited. As expected, the niece inherits everything. Jarvis then produces from the safe a reputed love potion. Does it work? Before long, everyone is sipping the sample with hilarious results. As the audience vacillates between thinking the potion is potent and believing it's a ruse, they are drawn into the mystery and hilarity. The flow of characters in, out and from under the beds reaches a frantic pace before the startling truth is revealed.
JARVIS (Age 45+) The late Mr. Stancliffe's butler. English or American, but should not be Texan. A pivotal character who is deeply involved in the mystery of the love potion and around whom most of the circumstantial humor seems to evolve. He remains throughout the quintessential butler, always calm, always in control. (Suave and serious, but with a sparkling dry wit).
MICHAEL (Age 30-70) Patrice's husband and an inveterate lecher. He sets his sights on Melody (and any other female that is breathing) but is repeatedly rebuffed and struck ;where it hurts the most'. A comic character who is at the center of most of the visual sequences. (Brash, loud, self-centered, not very likeable). Must be able to do physical comedy.
MR. OAKFIELD (Age 35+) A lawyer who gives the impression of a quiet, mild-mannered man until he too is caught up in the excitement of the love potion. He spends most of ACT II trying (unsuccessfully) to find a vacant bathroom in a series of classic comedic sequences, which leave the audience roaring. (A typical lawyer, perhaps a little officious and pompous).
