“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. When these two meet face-to-face, they find common ground in their independence from the man they unknowingly shared. Starring 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 at The Armory).
