The stage is set for a television game show, but it's to be a game that goes to the essence of morality today. To what extremes will the contestants go to win a prize of $100,000? The show begins as a typical, enthusiastic, laugh-it-up contest. Then, peeling away layer by layer the exteriors of the various contestants, the sometimes debasing price of success begins to be revealed. Will the mother reveal ugly incidents in her past to her son and to the audience? Will the husband slap his wife in front of 7 million viewers? Will the wife go "all out" in her quest for the big prize? And will the audience realize, as they become unwitting participants in the game show, exactly what they are encouraging the wife to do? The roles are challenging and the message strong in this shocking, relevant play about lack of ethics and what people will do for money.
