Play Synopsis

Three young ladies from Ohio - eager, excited and hoping to establish careers in New York - are compelled by circumstances to rent an old, gloomy apartment from a greedy landlady on their first night in town. The apartment is run-down and unkempt; but the price is right - especially since the landlady charges by the renter and the ladies have decided to present themselves as just two, passing the third off as a friend who is helping them to move in. Their subterfuge is complicated by a parade of zany neighbors passing through at all hours. And then there are the mysterious trespassers who periodically slip out of the apartment's seemingly locked closet carrying what appear to be shoe boxes.

To protect themselves against all these unwanted intruders, the ladies enlist the aid of two guards - a burly taxi-driver hired on the spur of the moment and a very intellectual boyfriend who insists on helping out with protective duties. Before long, the apartment is full to bursting. Will the young ladies be able to keep their little secret? Will the neighbors ever leave them alone? Will the landlady act on her growing suspicions that she is harboring a dangerous gang? And what's with the mysterious visitors from the locked closet? The suspense will keep the audience in stitches while they wait to see what, finally, will come out of the closet.
