Betty comes home from a business trip to find Rob, her husband, dancing to a Tchaikovsky waltz – dressed in one of her favourite outfits – with an inflatable woman named Susan. Betty is not happy. Rob is philosophical. Rob’s brother Greg and his wife Cheryl come to the rescue and try to get to the bottom of this bizarre and potentially marriage ending behaviour.




Rob Ideally 40s. A bit older than Betty Older brother of Greg, husband of Betty. Slightly depressed. Definitely introverted. Introspective and forlorn. Besotted by Betty.
Betty A bit younger than Rob Rob’s wife. Very black-and-white sort of character. No time for nuance. Needs to be competent at playing drunk.
Greg A bit younger than Rob Greg’s younger brother. More vivacious than his brother – probably with a better sense of humour. More fun at parties, anyway.
Cheryl A bit younger than Greg Greg’s wife. Happily naïve. Maybe slightly boganish. Easily amazed by things. Entirely likeable.
