Show Summary: Led by his subconscious (a bikini clad chorus), our "Hero", an out of shape playwright --- heads to the gym for the first time to conquer his writer’s block and attract his muse. As he ventures off to find the perfect gym, he is subjected to a host of obstacles including a receptionist who mocks him, a gym manager who insists on a urine test and oddities in the locker room. Can coming face-to- face with some of his worst fears ultimately lead him to inspiration?
