Synopsis: Bubba’s extra-curricular activities, without exception, appear to be illegal. They run the gamut from cash prize bingo, to a rum distillery, to off-track betting. You name it, Bubba is doing it. Arriving at the hotel is Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe (The epitome of the New England blue bloods) and her daughter Traci, to check out the hotel for Traci’s wedding. They have an appointment with Madame Coco, the hotel’s wedding planner, who unfortunately has eloped. The only staff member who knows anything about weddins is Uncle Bubba, who, coerced by Audrina, now has to spend the rest of the play, alternating between himself and Madame Coco.
Two other guests are checking in today. Traci’s fiance, Peter Mudd, and a mysterious Douglas DuPont. Through a mix up of room numbers, a series of mistaken identities ensues. Candy, the hotel receptionist is bribed by Beatrice to flirt with Peter, but ends up with Douglas. Douglas, who is actually an innocent travel writer for a destination wedding publication, is mistaken for a federal agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Candy’s report to Beatrice introduces a roller coaster of events creating an on again-off again wedding.
In the midest of all this mayhem,Bubba and Beatrice appear to be falling in love. Peter and Traci are reconciled (Several times), and Audrina and Douglas find they have a strong attraction for each other. Throughout the play though, one question remains unanswered: Is it true love or is it the mystique of the Lovers’ Landing Beach Hotel?
