The main action centers on the college president and his family and a small group of faculty and administrators.  Ambition  and intrigue are everywhere.

There are  eight characters, ranging in age from college to mature.  All are connected to the workings of the college, mainly having to do with a struggle for power.  The politics of the play mirror the current political situations and the financial crises faced by many small liberal arts colleges  where intentions are large but finances  are scares.  The humor is derived from the nature of the characters and their relationships which embroil them in matters of intrigue, betrayal, and seductions, both attempted and  achieved .  A fun time for all who enjoy the current college experience and for those who harbor memories of their undergraduate college experience.
