Strings Attached

FARCE/SATIRE. A lonely inventor thinks he is on the verge of creating the greatest toy craze in dolls that can talk. Toyco, the world’s largest toy company, buys the prototype, but when they test-market the dolls, something strange happens and the dolls take on a life of their own. Unwilling to live their lives as playthings, the dolls stage a revolt. In the meantime, a group of lonely women think they have concocted a recipe to create the perfect man by mixing into a large pot a romance novel, a Michael Bublé CD, money, a scented candle, a stuffed animal, a hunk of raw meat, and a picture of a male supermodel. Instead, they create an egocentric, poorly bilingual, illiterate ladies man! Now the women must find a way to ditch their annoying creation while Toyco employees try to hunt down and deactivate the rebellious dolls. Your audiences will love the quirky characters and hilarious situations in this witty farce!
