Play Summaries: Get A Job - It takes some imagination but what if today's attitudes and jargon were used 

back in 23 A.D.? Come with us while we explore that supposition and look in on a problem that most parents 

deal with every day regardless of the era or country.  My Favorite Husband - This story was written in the late 

1940's as part of a comedy radio series. A minor rewrite for live presentation is barely visible as the humor was 

just as spirited then as it is today. George and Liz Cooper are the loveable couple who misunderstand a simple 

communication and one of them overreacts.

Play Summary:

Bored by his privileged but mundane life, Henry Flemming sells his lucrative brokerage firm to buy a detective 

agency. On his very first case, and to the horror of his wife Karen and his two crazy neighbors Suzy and Stan, 

the Flemming living room begins to fill up with dead bodies. Even though Henry keeps showing up at home 

more disheveled and beaten up, he couldn't be happier. He's convinced he's found his life's work and Westport,

Connecticut will be safer for it! 

Performance dates:  April 22 - 25, 2022 at 7 pm each night

Character descriptions:

Henry Flemming - Our hero. He is an unassuming man who is frustrated with his boring life. He decides to quit

his mundane investment job and buy a small detective agency. He starts the show looking for more meaning in 

his life. At the beginning he's a little like Barney Fife and at the end he feels like James Bond.

Karen Flemming - his oblivious wife. She is very content with her comfortable upper middle class life and 

Henry's mid life crisis rocks her world.  She copes by drinking to a lot. She's always offering others drinks to 

help justify all her drinking to herself. By the end of the play, she starts to better understand why Henry feels 

more alive than ever and she tries to get on board with this new life.

Stan Spencer - The Flemming's pain in the neck neighbor. He's a psychiatrist who is pompous, arrogant, 

smug, superficial and isn't very interested in his wife.

Suzy Spencer - Stan's long suffering wife who knows he's a pompous jerk. She is sarcastic and tries to bait 

Stan to get a reaction from him. She has trouble hiding her disdain. Maybe that's why the Spencers are very 

quick to take a drink when one is offered.

Small Roles:

Walter Larsen - Karen's father, a distinguished self impressed rich businessman.

Lieutenant Davis - A plainclothes cop who is a closet gay.

Miss Havenhurst - Secretary of Henry's detective agency. She's young, sexy and has had a tough life.

Vito Mardigan - Tough threatening hoodlum in a shiny suit
