THE STORY: Thelma and Louise meets The First Wives Club in this fun and flirtatious comedy. Divorcées Mary and Jo are suspicious of their friend Liz’s new dentist boyfriend. He’s not just a weirdo; he may be a serial killer! After all, his hygienist just disappeared. Trading their wine glasses for spy glasses, imaginations run wild as the ladies try to discover the truth and save their friend in a hilarious off-road adventure.
"“…the laughs in Wendy MacLeod’s play…come fast and furious…modern, lively, and loads of fun.” —The Boston Globe. “WOMEN IN JEOPARDY! is a damn winner. …a farcical comedy that somehow manages to feel both familiar and innovative…If you look behind the laughs, though, there is a conversation MacLeod is looking to have about the tropes and stereotypes of women-centric casts. But she leaves the work up to us…The job of this play is not to make any large sweeping statements, or to embed ideologies; rather, WOMEN IN JEOPARDY! inspires conversation through its laughter. At its heart, WOMEN IN JEOPARDY! is comedy gold. It borrows little bits from everything that’s come before it, but the result is refreshing and original, and somehow, the laughter comes easy.” —Rochester City Newspaper. “…a highly entertaining mystery-comedy…all about those fuzzy feelings of empowerment, watching women triumph in friendship and the biological unfairness of middle age…” —Rochester Democrat and Chronicle."
