SYNOPSIS for TANGLED WEBBS

 

TANGLED WEBBS is a zany, cheeky, light-hearted musical parody of daytime soap operas back in their early TV prime when every channel at noon sported a daytime drama. Set in the innocent 'Camelot' summer year of 1963, the story takes

place in a conservative, fictional town called Willowcrest, located in Anywhere, USA. The ever- entwining saga centers around the upstanding, much-admired Webb family ... their friends, their foes, their fate.

 

Major subplots include a love triangle, mistaken identities, acute marriage problems, near-death operations, alcoholism, workaholism, drug abuse, long-term amnesia, abandoned babies, and a murder whodunnit pushed to their comical, sometimes politically irreverent 1960s limits. These subplots are all “untangled” by the end, but is it happily EVER after or happily NEVER after for each of our prime characters?
