The play/story:
Comic-book creator Stanley Dorfman is having a nervous breakdown to due to his constant pressure to meet deadlines, create a new villian, pay child support, and attend to his lawyer wife, who is pregnant. As he loses his grip on reality, his wild and hapless cartoon characters come alive to help and plague him. They include Stanley's alter ego, the superhero Dwarfman and his partner electra, mad scientist Dr. Azabov, and the formidable Roach King. In the midst of Stanley's desperate search for his own identity, he retreats to a remote cabin in Maine, where his dead father pays him a visit. (This can be summerized and Shortened if need be)
