Déjà Who? is comedy about mix-ups in love, real and ideal–and otherwise.
Act 1: Romance. “The Eternal Moment”–Jessica and David have met and decided they are soul mates. Trouble is both are married; and now they find themselves in heaven.
Act 2: Sitcom. “Cold Feet”–bachelor Justin has two problems: his nephew, Brian, who keeps breaking up wedding plans; and neighbor, Tasha, who wants to leave her husband and marry him.
Act 3: Dream-play. “Raising Helen”–middle-aged Leo awakens in a cemetery and meets the Devil, who promises him his ideal woman.
Act 4: Slapstick Farce. “Déjà Who?”– Marion and John try to save their marriage therapy session–where they meet each otherʼs lovers.
