Storyline

Rob's relaxing day off changes when Laura tells him that Mrs. Billings is stopping by to see him. That can only mean Mrs. Billings wants his professional skills to organize another community fund-raising show, which Rob doesn't want to do again if only because of the hardship it was to do last year. Rob remembers back to that situation which was made all the more difficult in trying to cast Cleopatra for a comedy sketch, especially against a seemingly amorous Harry Rogers as Mark Antony. But as Mrs. Billings stops by, she may surprise Rob in her reason for the visit. Written by Huggo
