Despite its name, Houston playwright Mary Jane Taegel's comedy Going Bare is about medical malpractice insurance, not nudity. Jack (played by Phillip Murrell) is an obstetrician who has dropped his outrageously priced malpractice insurance (what insiders call ''going bare''). When he gets hit by a frivolous lawsuit, he concocts a scheme to hide his assets by putting them in his wife’s name. There's one little hiccup with his plan — in order for it to succeed, Jack and his wife have to get a divorce. They call the lawyers and get the divorce proceedings started, much to the delight of Claire, a neighborhood hottie who's thrilled Jack's going to be single soon.
