James Wiltshire, head psychiatrist and administrator of "Colonel Wiltshire's Asylum for the Mentally Diminished and Old Women", knows the pressures of running a four-generation family business.  With rumors swirling that his board of directors may be questioning the Asylum's profitability, Dr. Wiltshire has decided to hold a fund-raiser to offset some of the more difficult to explain "expenses" he's incurred.  But he has more than just the board to contend with -- a resentful head nurse, a patient multi-layered in psychosis, an overly ambitious PR man, twin executive assistants, and a conniving board member, all have their reasons to hope Dr. Wiltshire takes an early "retirement".

Cast: 3m, 3f

Godfather Coronie Donleone wants to retire and has gathered his “family” to the Golden Flamingo Hotel to announce his heir. Family ties begin to unravel when the Don and his consigliore are both found murdered before the transfer of power can occur. To make matters worse, a G-man named Ness (not that one) turns up and takes over to investigate the crimes. Can a bitter step-daughter, an ambivalent son, a wife who wants to take the family business legit, and the Don’s enforcer straighten out their affairs? Who will be named the next Don and take over to ensure the survival of the “family”? Will Agent Ness simply survive the evening?

Cast: 4m, 2f
