Synopsis: Becky Hein left Sun Prairie for the New York to try and make it in musical theater. After a decade of just scraping by, living in crowded apartments and only being cast in bit parts in off-off Broadway plays to show for her efforts, she has left her never-published novelist boyfriend (Nick) and returned home. She ends up meeting an old high school classmate, Biff. While not exciting Biff is stable, financially secure and worships her. And so she decides to end all her dreaming and marry Biff, much to the joy of her parents, Tom and Francis (Pinky) Hein. Of course, her parents have worked hard to make this the perfect reception, but then Nick makes an uninvited appearance, challenges Becky’s decision to throw her dreams away, and throws the reception into chaos.
