For Love or Money by Kate Jaimet
Stuck in an unpaid internship at a tumble-down community tennis club, 22-year-old Chandra must prove her mettle by raising enough money to fix the roof before the City inspector shuts the club down. But when her boyfriend Vin unwittingly causes a rift between a Baby-Boomer donor and her philandering husband, the young couple must embark on a mad cross-dressing scheme to win back the donor's good graces and save the club — and Chandra's job prospects — from ruin. Meanwhile, the intervention of three historic playwrights — Aristophanes, Isabella Andreini, and Georges Feydeau — adds a meta-dramatic twist to this comedic collision of genders and generations.
