Play Summary:

After her husband forgets their 32nd wedding anniversary, Teresa Parliament sets out to find a life for herself 

outside the home. She immerses herself in a wild journey through every kind of class or club she can find, 

including Addicts Anonymous - even though she's not an addict.  Playwright Norm Foster's inimitable sense of 

humor shines through Mrs. Parliament as well as the many other characters in the story. Mrs. Parliament's life-

affirming adventure is sure to leave audiences both laughing and with the knowledge that life can always give 

us second chances if we are willing to take that first step.
