Synopsis
It’s no longer business as usual at the Rolling Hills City Hall, because there is a new mayor in charge and it’s a woman! Mavis finds she has her hands full as the civic leader of her community and she vows to move Rolling Hills in a positive direction even if she has to push it along all by herself. But fortunately, she has the help of her fellow councilmen to back her up . . . way back. There’s Turk, who is more of an antagonist than an ally; Lenny, who has a legal background and the mouth to prove it; and Jewel, the council secretary who is only a bottle of peroxide short of being the proverbial blonde. Together the Foursome are compelled to tackle the issue of Economic Development in an effort to become more competitive with the arch rival community of Addison Heights. But distractions abound as a trio of sisters, who are all candidates for a long vacation in a mental institution, and a trio of cousins, who live in a hole in the ground and are the male counterparts of the Abernathy sisters, bring their own problems to the city council. Toss in a dog-lovin’ redneck, a French Businessman, and a goofy spy, and the public meeting of the Rolling Hills city council heads south and the citizens find themselves unwittingly enrolled in a class of “self-improvement” taught by none other than the mayor herself. Then things go from bad to worse when a kidnapping takes place and the highbrow MacAllisters from Addison Heights show up to steal a major industrial project from the needy hands of the Rolling Hills community. But in the end, a surprise development turns the tables around as one citizen becomes an unimaginable hero.
 
This play utilizes a simple set with only two exits, both of which converge in an archway up center stage. No working doors are required and minimal fixtures are necessary to furnish the set.
