Mrs. Farnsworth

Heart SmallWhat if a hard-partying Yale student dallies with a Vassar lass and gets into a spot of trouble – which his wealthy high-powered political family promptly gets him out of. Thirty years later the Vassar girl is now a rich, discontented Connecticut housewife who is mad as the dickens at the President’s policies.

What if she signs up for a writing workshop with the goal of writing a tell-all about the boy who is now President?  Gordon, the writing instructor, is all too happy to help Mrs. Farnsworth get the truth out. Then Mr. Farnsworth swoops in to use his charm to try to stop the book.  As Mr. and Mrs. Farnsworth present their respective cases to Gordon and his students, they reveal that neither is someone entirely to be trusted, but both come off as people of good faith. That’s when the sparks start to fly!

“Topical and anti-administration as it is, Mrs. Farnsworth is written to make us laugh rather than to raise our political conscience.” – Curtain Up

“A hilarious play for Democrats – and Republicans with a sense of humor.” – KPBS On Air Magazine
