Tom Swimm


A Full Length Comedy

Can a broken-hearted Broadway musical composer find the true meaning of love after his wife runs off to Italy and his Bed suddenly comes to life? Can three very different women figure out why creative, artistic men just don’t ‘get it’? How can anyone write a love song when they think that love is basically a crock that only happens in romantic comedies? Find the answers, and witness a Kung Pao Chicken food fight, in this contemporary romp that takes you from the streets of Broadway to the canals of Venice, and back again.
