Cast Details:

Eleanor Bander - Strong-willed and struggling to deal with a mid-life crisis. A sense of humor, heightened sense of drama, and spontaneous. Actress needs to have strong, good comedic timing.

Elma Blue - Novelist. Very tongue-in-cheek with a wonderful sense of humor. Sarcastic, level-headed with a bit of the flair for the dramatic.

Dr. Fred Abernathy - Optometrist. Bland, self-conscious, and possibly a little on the stalker side. Married, but seems to be okay with admiring other women.

Elizabeth - Eleanor's daughter. Sharp, sensible, and somewhat stressed as her wedding date nears. Inherited stubbornness from her mother, and is shy of marriage, probably because her parents divorced.

Walter Bander - Successful businessman. Smart, loves his daughter, can be swayed by emotion, but not often. Can be as stubborn as his ex-wife, Eleanor.

Vince Sigmon - Elizabeth's fiancée. High School biology teacher. A genuinely good guy who has reached his limit of patience.

Gretchen Hiller - Rather dim, curious, and gossipy.

Synopsis: An established favorite with stock theatres, this fast-paced, wildly funny farce centers on the zany schemes of a middle-aged divorcee who decides that the time is ripe to get back together with her ex-husband. Divorced for fifteen years, and running low on cash, Eleanor Bander decides reconciliation with her ex-husband (whose second wife died the year before) is her best hope. To lure him within striking range, she tells him that their daughter is about to be married—hinting that it is a forced situation—when the truth is that the daughter is merely engaged again (for the fifth time) to her long-standing fiancé. The ex-husband, Walter, not only arrives but brings along his current flame, a former classmate who was Eleanor's competition from high-school days. As the plot thickens, which it does with growing hilarity, Eleanor's friends and neighbors become involved in the action, culminating in a sur-prise birthday party where the truth, at last, comes out. But Walter is pre-pared to forgive and forget, and falls easily into Eleanor's trap. So easily, in fact, that Eleanor is the one who now has second thoughts—deciding that it is better, after all, to stay single and broke than to resume the bickering that drove her away from Walter in the first place.
