Event Description

By Doris Baizley
Directed by Sam Rush

A crowd-pleasing comedy that pokes fun at “Homemakers’ contests” popular in the 1950s. The scene is 1955, at a Los Angeles hotel where the four finalists for the Mrs. California pageant vie for the state title of ‘ideal woman’ and for prizes that include a New Freedom All Gas Kitchen. Dot, Mrs. Los Angeles, and the other contestants must demonstrate their prowess at ironing a man’s shirt, sewing an apron from an original pattern, setting a table, preparing a meal, and delivering a monologue entitled “My Proudest Moment.” Doris Baizley is also the author of Sexsting.Written in collaboration with criminal defense lawyer Susan Raffanti, it won the 2004 Guthrie/Playwrights’ Center Two-Headed Challenge. Director Sam Rush is Production Coordinator for Smith College Theatre, co-founder and Producing Director of the critically acclaimed New Century Theatre, a professional summer theatre.
