100 Lunches, A Gourmet Comedy by Jack Sharkey and Leo W. Sears is a romantic comedy of gastronomic proportions! Successful mystery playwright Chuck Reynolds has had his plays lauded by all critics except Charity Starr. When she shows up at his home and has the unmitigated gall to ask his expert help in writing a play of her own, Chuck fiendishly insists that their teacher/pupil sessions be held over lunch with Charity footing the bill at some of the most expensive restaurants in New York City. Lunatic waiters provide a uniquely hilarious touch to these meetings. Love blossoms despite the scheming of Chuck’s amorous neighbor. Charity’s play opens on Broadway and she finds out what it’s like to be a target for all her critical confreres. Non-stop fun, romance, and explosive hilarity make this an ideal show for the entire family.
