    Mirabelle and Bernice, two very proper ladies, order lunch at an expensive restaurant, only to discover that the restaurant has a “No credit cards–cash only” policy. What follows are scandalous lies, dishonorable accusations, shouted denials, someone getting thrown out, and (shudder) making a scene. After losing all pretense of ladylike behavior, they find a solution that leaves the audience laughing.

    “Your play provided the perfect entertainment for our local senior centre’s annual Strawberry Tea. While the ladies at ‘L’Ambrosia Luncheria’ were facing their dilemmas and comedic solutions, the audience was thoroughly enjoying our antics and their desserts. We were a hit!” –R.H.
