Rita and Dieter are thrilled to meet Gregor, the world’s most celebrated architect. His buildings rise from the earth like twisted post-post-modern megaliths. So why has he taken on the remodel of a decaying boathouse, a project that was supposed to go to Rita and Dieter? They’re ready for a confrontation, but nothing prepares them for the heart-stopping truth about their idol. Another outrageous comedy from the author of The Beard of Avon.
