The Want Ads

A revue ranging from cabaret comedy to nightmarish surrealism. A housewife is visited by a Marx Brothers duo bringing her all imaginable disasters. A man trying to instill consciousness in workers brings only pain. A taxi driver asks for a bank loan to start his own steel mill. A couple trying to link through the Personals let their tape recorders talk to one another. A phone solicitor is fired for communicating too well. A mother is stranded in a blizzard while sitting at the dinner table.
