ACT ONE: Marion Pendergast has raised her three daughters (Oxygenia, Lithia, and Plutonia) virtually without the help of her traveling husband Herbert, a chemist whose specialty is analyzing water samples from every fresh water lake or stream in the world. Her favorite pastime is regretting her past decisions that led her to her current lot in life, and she often wishes she could have done things differently. She will get her chance through a strange Amazonian wishing god, a statue her husband sends from Brazil.
ACT TWO: The statue has worked its peculiar charm. The house is the same but Marion’s husband is now Morgan, who hasn’t left home since 2000 and who spends his time collecting and photographing insects to sell as art on ebay. Furthermore, her eldest daughter Plutonia insists she is called “Tiffany,” and the obnoxious boy next door is now her ‘son.’ To make matters worse, her best friend Belinda now is married to Herbert and has Lithia for a daughter, except she is now named Urania. Finally, Morgan’s eccentric Aunt Serafina sweeps through the household periodically, dominating anyone she can find. All this throws poor Marion into a state of confusion, and her strange behavior leads the others to believe she is mentally deranged. Act Two closes in complete chaos.
ACT THREE: Nice Dr. Fagan enters the story, sedating Marion, who now regrets her wish and the way everything has turned out. If only she could change everything back the way it was. She gets her chance when Herbert sends Belinda the same Amazon statue that appeared in Act One. Marion fervently pledges never to wish for things to be different again if only the statue will restore everything to the way it was. She gets her wish.
