Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this slightly science-fictiony romantic comedy, Ivan is a nice but rather clueless young man who works for a woman about his own age, a tough and ruthless person who is all business. He is so clueless that he is about to marry this unsavory person, much to the dismay of his ex-ballerina mother. He is doing his banking one day when a group of robbers comes in, stealing not only from the bank, but from its customers. He narrowly manages to escape them by heading for the basement and taking a doorway he never noticed before which should lead to the basement of the Chinese restaurant next door. Instead, he finds himself on the beach on another planet, one with two suns. There, he meets a professor and his daughter. The girl falls in love with him at first sight and returns through the doorway after him to persuade him to marry her. Other denizens of the second world also go through the doorway, and before the end of the show, a number of unlikely marriages have been proposed and accepted.
