Send Me No Flowers by Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore
A Romantic Comedy set in the early 1960’s
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Send Me No Flowers appeared on Broadway in 1960 and became a Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall movie in 1964.
It’s the early 1960’s.  A time of lovely, serene suburban homes well-trimmed green lawns and happy couples where the husband goes off to work in the morning and ‘the little lady’ stays home to deal with cobwebs left by the cleaning lady.  In this sunshiny Pollyanna world, George Kimball is a serious, practicing hypochondriac – – a practice his wife Judy lovingly tolerates but does not support.  All is fine until George overhears his doctor discussing a terminal patient with only weeks to live and mistakenly believes it’s about him, even though he just had a physical and was pronounced in perfect health, except for a little indigestion.  With this news George immediately begins putting his final affairs in order, including getting his wife to go to night school to learn to deal with day-to-day things without him and finding a replacement husband (a companion only) for his wife once he departs – – – a very sweet, unselfish thought that goes terribly wrong when Judy thinks his strange behavior is to hide an affair.  From there, a series of crossed wires, miscommunications, and further misunderstandings quickly multiply amidst clever dialogue, funny situations, and a variety of eccentric and hilarious people who try to help.
