'Love, Sex, and the I.R.S.'
The comedic farce "Love, Sex, and the I.R.S." is coming to the Minot State University Summer Theatre stage June 23-27. The show is the last play to be directed by Paula Lindekugel-Willis, recently retired MSU associate professor, who is moving at the end of the summer.
"Love, Sex, and the I.R.S." is a wild charade, written by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, with twists of fate, gags, mistaken identities and hilarious comedic lines. Follow Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur, out of work musicians, who room together in "the big apple," New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married couple. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the pair that they are going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancee, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back, Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancée and Leslie's ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore.
