Set in 1964, the play follows the lives of newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter as they adjust to married life in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment. Paul is a buttoned-down, straight-arrow lawyer who’s wound a little too tight, while Corie is an effervescent free spirit who won’t let anything disturb her romantic bliss. Aside from the five-flight climb and the hole in their skylight, the Bratters must also contend with eccentric upstairs neighbor Victor Velasco, who must go through their apartment to get to his. Corie hatches a plot to get her mother together with Mr. Velasco, but the entire evening goes awry and even casts doubt on the viability of the Bratters’ new marriage. All ends well, however, as Corie realizes how much she loves Paul, and Paul goes overboard to prove to Corie that he can loosen up.
