When we last met our failed actors-turned-art gallery operators – Patrick (Patrick Breen) and Willie (Willie Garson), with their cohorts, Hunter (Steve Bloem), Franny (Francesca Fauci) and Patrick’s wife, Nadine (Elisa Donovan) – they were struggling after being struck down by a nasty art critic.
This time, they had much better luck with a “Neo-Ceramist” named Chomp who makes glasses and plates and assorted china ware out of dirt and broken glass he finds around nuclear waste disposal plants (it is important to note he does not go in the site, but around it). Hence, the name “The China Syndrome”.
Surprisingly, it appears that nuclear china pieces are very popular, possibly thanks to the good feng shui that Hunter brought to the arrangement of the exhibit, and they finally make some money from their exhibition. But do they need to throw in a Geiger counter and HazMat suit with every purchase?
However, nothing is ever simple in this world, and we find our band of merry galleristas (or is it galleristi?) in a complex web of love pentagon. Nadine is pregnant and the father is not her husband! Scandalous!
Nadine: “You find a doctor who will turn this DNA into his DNA!”
Willie: “I can get you his DNA. I can scrape it off of Hunter!”
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So I hope you’re prepared for this avalanche!
