The Love Hex or Nicest Flings in Mexico
by Mike Meier
New York in 1929, shortly before the Great Depression. Rose is unhappily married to a mobster lawyer. She suffers from early-onset arthritis. Her doctor recommends a hot spring treatment. Her friend Alice, recently widowed and a mother of three, suffers chronic fatigue. Eventually, both travel to the hot springs in Mexico and hook up with two young gigolos. The days are jolly until on the Dia de los Muertos, Rose’s jealous husband arrives out of the blue.
The Love Hex or Nicest Flings in Mexico is a comedy about the many things in life we don’t quite understand, such as love, enchantment, and magic spells.
