The ruse works well at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for the “crazy” sister and some of the neighbor ladies decide it is their duty to save the poor demented soul.

A priest, a rabbi and a frog walk into a bar ... Direct from New York comes the hit off-Broadway comedy inspired by the popular "Old Jews Telling Jokes" website.
