Nuts, Bolts, And Carnations
By Don Rausch.

Cast: 2m., 3w. Cliff Jablonski is proud of his manliness, and he doesn't tolerate any disrespect from the guys in his auto repair shop. Into this macho world one day comes a bouquet of pink carnations—from Cliff's wife—because she loves him. The boys in the shop go wild and kid Jablonski to distraction. Cliff gets so mad that he bites off one of the flowers and eats it, dies, and goes to heaven. But God won't let him in until he goes back home and apologizes to everybody. From this simple beginning, the plot winds and twists through a delirious maze of events that keep audiences hysterical with laughter. Cliff's feminist daughter-in-law is horrified at the gift of flowers; she foresees an upheaval of the very roots of civilization—"lilacs in the locker room!" There is consternation on the part of Cliff's daughter, who thinks everything is beautiful, and his son-in-law, who is just as masculine as Cliff (he runs a bowling alley) but kind of likes flowers. In the midst of the constant hilarity, there's a surprise around every corner ... including a telephone call from God. Just right for professional and nonprofessional dinner theatre and for general staging by high schools, colleges and community theatres. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
