Larry\'s Favorite Chocolate Cake
Larry's Favorite Chocolate Cake
Winner: McLaren Comedy Playwriting Festival Competition

Co-Winner: Mill Mountain Theatre New Play Competition
By Kent R. Brown.

Cast: 5m., 4w. Larry has had it! No longer capable of enduring the pressures of being a responsible husband, an understanding father, and a productive employee, Larry has pulled the plug. Literally. Exhausted, overworked and deluged by graphs and figures while preparing his company 's annual report, Larry hit "delete" for three empowering hours! "It all crashed," Larry confesses gleefully. Now Larry no longer has a job. Needing safer surroundings, he decides to move back home with his parents and resurrect the carefree days of his youth. Unfortunately, Larry's unconventional and high-spirited parents have other plans. In and out of Larry's surreal crisis move a variety of delightful players: an obnoxious boss, a coworker with whom Larry is illicitly involved, a seductive travel agent, his wife's wan office lover, an erstwhile props assistant who keeps the action moving, and more. A comedy for all who have felt like tossing in the towel! Minimal set.
