Alice and Manfred set about to renovate their house. Those few months completely wore them out - financially, physically and mentally. Fortunately, everything should be finished within a week.

Why a sudden disappearance of a wall, staircase and one contractor though? And where have the other three go? And who really are these contractors? 

Alice is not ready to give up on her dream of a beautiful house at any price and Manfred plays the violin…

Then, let's just hope we'll be happy!

ALICE: Drop it! Why would you die, no one is dying, we're going to be happy, we're going to glow. We're already happy, we just don't know it yet. 
MANFRED: Once it's done, I don't want to see a contractor ever again. I hate them, Alice, I hate them so much. 
BUILDER: Wait a second! Are you suggesting there's something wrong with me doing my job? 
ALICE: No, no, no! We're really glad you're working this late, we jut got a little bit startled...

Kindly note that actors smoke on stage during the show.
