Mixed Doubles 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 embarks 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.

With cameo appearances by Ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes and commedia dell'arte diva Isabella Andreini, does anyone play by the rules in this hilarious 21st-century farce?
