Tasca’s play introduces the audience to the two Bassett sisters. Gertrude is prudish, capable, hardworking, and says only “Oh, fudge,” when she is upset. Madeline is completely dependent on her sister. She is sloppy, fat, cunning, and sounds like a plumber who has lost his number four wrench. When Gertrude decides to marry, leaving Madeline to fend for herself, the situation becomes traumatic.

In an attempt to break up Gertrude’s romance, Madeline runs the gamut, making obscene telephone calls to the bridegroom’s 80-year-old lush of a mother, outrageously insulting the groom to be, sneaking off to New York to trip on LSD, and finally sneaking back home to live in the attic and sulk. When all efforts fail, she feigns a stroke.

This show is rated PG due to mild adult language.
