The Perry's have it all --- money, friends and status in the community --- but their marriage seems to have landed in a rut.  As the show opens, the Perrys make their traditional New Years resolutions together:  Matthew declares to Julia that he wants something more . . . to be able to travel abroad, to play golf everyday, to spend more time at his club.  Thus, he resolves to kill her by next New Years Eve so he will be free to pursue his heart’s desires.  Julia takes his resolution in stride and resolves to still be alive a year later.  Their games begin and they let no one stand in their ways as they attempt to keep their resolutions as the year goes by.  To liven things up, we add the Perry’s spoiled, dingy daughter Bunny, her bright and forgiving boyfriend Donald and their plans for their wedding on the following New Year’s Eve.  We also have to deal with Buttram, the Perry’s longtime butler who harbors a dreadful secret – or two.  Entering into the fray is a bumbling police detective named Plotnik who tries to figure out “who-done-it” --- that is if something really has been done.  Who will succeed in his or her resolution --- and who gets caught in the crossfire?  This hilarious comedy has lots of surprises, right up to the end.
