After stumbling upon an outdoor production of a Shakespeare play in Manhattan, landscaper Bob Malone returns home inspired to write a play about his troubled marriage. He hires two reluctant New York theatre professionals to spend a week at his home and stage the play in his garage, along with a cast of colorful locals.
