This is a political satire about a fictional town by Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim. The town has gone bankrupt, because the only industry in the town produces a product that never wears out. Mayoress Cora Hoover Hooper and the town council have to arrange more tourists and they do this by faking a story of flowing water from a rock. Meanwhile, patients of a mental hospital in the town flee, and mix with town folks and tourists. Chaos engulfs the town while a fake psychiatrist named J Bowden Hapgood falls in love with a nurse from the asylum named Fay Apple.
