A farce of modern mythological proportions. Dietz has created a little romp that could play anywhere. Very fun.
- John Hayes, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Following "one of those nights," Daran Walters, perennial loser in the game of love, inexplicably finds himself back in the home of Mitzi Doherty, the "one that got away."
Mitzi's family-her hardhearted mother, in particular-is none-too-pleased by the sudden reappearance of her ex-boyfriend after more than a year, as it curiously coincides with Mitzi's imminent nuptials.
And, as if the situation wasn't awkward enough, Daran also begins seeing a mysterious and strangely alluring-not to mention mischievous-woman about the house named Val who may (or may not) be the fabled Goddess of Love!
Is Daran dreaming? Hallucinating? Or could it be that he has actually been called to serve some higher purpose?
The answers are surprising and the laughs are plentiful in this delightful romantic fantasy comedy of love, loss and letting go.
