“One of Hare’s finest ... bitingly funny and often deeply affecting.” —The Daily Telegraph

Frances was the dutiful wife. Madeleine was the not-so-dutiful mistress. In this sardonically funny comedy, Frances and Madeleine – two women of a certain age – meet face-to-face and find common ground in their independence from the man they unknowingly shared. Featuring Portland favorites Sharonlee McLean (The Receptionist and 25 others at The Armory) and Gretchen Corbett (Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest).
