About this event

For A Good Time, Mary

A Comedy By Karen Ruetz


When Ed gets laid off after 23 years, his wife Mary has no idea how they are going to make ends meet until he finds a new job. Mary has never worked outside the home, and she has Ed’s 84-year-old mother to take care of. When her friend, Jenny, asks Mary to take over her side business while she’s on a cruise, Mary sees it as an opportunity to help meet the family’s expenses. However, will she be able to keep it a secret that she is a phone sex operator?
