This play has everything- the supposedly deserted inn, stormy weather, a Peter Lorre type, a Frankenstein, closets with built-in bodies, a love story, and an assortment of characters the likes of whom you've never seen. The assembled group are the winners of a contest, "I like Foam-X because.. In 25 Words or Less." The prize they all won is an old fashioned Thanksgiving in New England. When the contest winners realize that the Lodge is inhabited by an altogether different group, whose interests are far more sinister than merely enjoying a pleasant weekend, everything breaks loose, and turns the prize into an hilarious nightmare.
