Lucy writes a play for her woman’s club, but when Ricky won’t perform it, she changes it from the Cuban setting A Tree Grows in Havana to an English setting, The Perils of Pamela with Fred as the lead. Ricky later changes his mind when he learns that a Hollywood talent scout will be in the audience, but he’s using the original script while everyone else uses the new version.
