Rover Dramawerks Presents World Premiere Comedy BIGGER
Plastic surgeon John Swift (played by Lucas Slade) is in BIG trouble...he's in debt to loan sharks, the FBI (agents played by Alexandra Moffit and Darwin Ragsdale) wants him to help bring down a ruthless mobster (Gary Anderson), and he's gotten both his wife (Gena Loe) and the mobster's girlfriend (Tammy Venable) pregnant. Throw in Dr. Swift's Pepto Bismol guzzling receptionist (Nancy Lamb), a clueless bodyguard (Doug Luke), and an ancient godfather with a little problem (Joe Porter), and you won't believe how he manages to get out of it!
