HEAVEN HELP ME

(Still Got It Players Studio)

The three surviving Holloway brothers are facing a dilemma! Their string of casual eateries are losing money and in order to save the family business oldest brother Sam wants to sell the only remaining joint property, a valuable waterfront house in Rockaway Beach, N.Y. The problem is youngest, ‘black sheep’, brother Rollie has his own plans for the proceeds, namely to pay off the loan sharks he owes money to. Middle brother and business accountant Kevin has an overbearing wife who also wants her share. And let’s not forget their deceased brother’s widow Martha, who also has a quarter share and needs the money due to a pending divorce! And if all that is not bad enough, said deceased brother Fred is haunting the house and doesn’t want anyone else living there!
