Auditions for Whose Wives Are They Anyway? by Michael Parker


David McGachen and John Baker have planned a weekend off before their new C.E.O. arrives on Monday. With their wives safely off on a shopping spree in NYC, they check into The Oakfield Golf and Country Club intending to “golf their brains out.” They unexpectedly encounter their new boss, and she insists on meeting the wives, commenting blithely “no one who went golfing for a weekend without his wife would ever work for me”. So…David and John have to produce wives. Inevitably, everything goes wrong as John and David attempt to “pull the wool” over the new boss’ eyes—literally!
