When a staid attorney falls in love with a wacky younger man, little does she realize that this could lead to something drastic - marriage. He promises connubial equality, but what does equality mean? He goes from med student to house husband to his own career while she puts in 16-hour days at the office. They may be equal but who has time to notice? Eventually, she thinks his late nights involve another woman and she starts singing a different tune. A classic play with music about the ever changing battle of the sexes.
"There's a song between every lawsuit and a laugh simmering beneath every cookpot lid ... in this laugh-provoking musical..." - Press/Post
"Although the play's cast only numbers two, the audience is involved as the performers speak directly to the theatergoers." - Bennington Banner
