She is a talented performer but a sloppy housekeeper. Dough, her ex-boyfriend and sometimes roommate, is a composer and lyricist who has written a musicalized version of presently in workshop with Cary in the starring role. He survives by driving a cab and pushing marijuana. Their lives are suddenly disrupted by the unexpected arrival from California of Carys older sister, Cecilia, who has left her husband and two children after an argument. The two sisters are extreme opposites. Cary uses foul language and is fiercely independent and ambitious. Cecilia is well-groomed and conformist and is looked at askance for her straight-laced style of living. No sooner has Cecilia appeared than she transforms Carys rattrap of an an apartment into a decent, even attractive place to live, adding insult to injury by cooking up a gourmet meal, much to Dougs delight and amazement. But the sparks really begin to fly when Cary discovers that Cecilia and Doug have spent the night together, after having shared a joint. From then on, the play moves hilariously to its conclusion. By seeing the value of change in their lives, the two sisters are reconciled- Dougs musical is optioned for Broadway, with Cary in the lead- and everything works out to the satisfaction of all, especially the audiences.
