SYNOPSIS

In this plugged-in world of e-mail, text-messaging and camera phones, do a bride and groom really need to be in the same country to go on a honeymoon? Karen and Max are getting married. At least, if their jobs will let them be in the same city at the same time. Karen’s family and friends are surprised and confused by this sudden love affair.
How will all of this work out?

Actors should have a flair for physical and verbal comedy.
