Description: Set to an original libretto by Mr. Pasatieri, the comedy, set in 1948, tells the story of a wealthy Texas couple who want to "toughen up" their 25-year-old nephew from New York. The action takes place at the Double-T Ranch and a seedy hotel, recently under new ownership. A pair of suspenders left by the nephew during a clandestine visit to the questionable hotel before it changed hands causes suspicion of infidelities in many quarters. All the characters eventually converge on the hotel, where, after teetering on the brink of a disastrous outcome, everything is resolved, as one by one, the misunderstandings are cleared up.
