Empty Space Theatre

A wild comedy about Louise and Theo Markes, a couple whose conservative existence is shattered when Louise’s bloomers accidentally fall down in public. Though Louise’s momentary display does not result in the feared scandal, it does attract two infatuated men, each of whom wants to rent the spare room in the Markes’ home.
